BOARD OF EDUCATION
RECOGNIZED BY NASB
All six members of the Board of Education were recognized by the Nebraska Association of School Boards with the 2014 Award of Achievement.
In recognition of their volunteer time and commitment to education, the Association commends continued participation and growth in knowledge and best practice governance. Through the Awards of Achievement program, the following board members were recognized for their outstanding excellence: Julie Agard-Level X, Dave Glover- Level VI, Tim Higgins- Level V, Angela Nickel-Level II, Doug McCarty and Jon Watts - Level I.
“To have a board where all six board members received recognition has to be rare - if not unique,” said KPS Superintendent Brian Maher. “To have members in their first term receive recognition is consistent with the quality work that this volunteer board is doing for our district.”
NASB is a private, nonprofit organization that serves the needs of Nebraska public school districts. Board Members from across the state may participate in board development training throughout the year by attending workshops and conferences to help strengthen their role in governance, legislative advocacy, and stewardship of district resources in support of student achievement.
