RPS LEADERS EARN RECOGNITION FROM NEBRASKA ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS

Five members of the Ralston Public Schools Board of Education earned recognition from the Nebraska Association of School Boards (NASB) at a regional meeting in La Vista on August 22, 2019.

NASB is a private, nonprofit organization that serves the needs of Nebraska public school districts and Educational Service Unit board members.  Nebraska’s 1,700 school 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.

In recognition of their volunteer time and commitment to education, the Association commends continued participation and growth in knowledge and best practice governance.  Awards recognize elected leaders from Level 1 to Level 10. Mrs. Linda Richards, RPS Board of Education President, earned her Level 10 recognition in 2018.

Board members receiving Level 1 recognition include Ms. Elizabeth Kumru and Ms. Mary Roarty. Mr. Mike Overkamp and Mrs. Heather Johnson earned Level 3 recognition and Dr. Jay Irwin earned Level 3 & 4 recognition.
