January is Board of Education Appreciation Month

07 Jan January is Board of Education Appreciation Month

The month of January provides a unique opportunity to acknowledge a special group of volunteer, elected officials in education. It is School Board Recognition Month, and it provides communities across Michigan a way to acknowledge the continuing efforts of local and ISD school board members in providing leadership and guidance to local school districts. Across the state, there are more than 4,000 school board members who dedicate countless hours of hard work to improving education for Michigan children. Our school board members take that responsibility and public trust very seriously, dedicating an enormous number of hours to their work both in and outside of board meetings. Attending school functions, preparing for board meetings, reading financial reports, agendas and proposals, and making a host of difficult and challenging decisions are just a few of the regular activities board members participate in through their service. Board members come from all walks of life with diverse experiences and backgrounds, but working together, they make decisions in the best interests of Northview students. Northview wishes to recognize the work and years of dedicated service of our board members:

  • Tim Detwiler (2005)
  • Liz Ensing (2016)
  • Michelle Gallery (2015)
  • Linda LaBerteaux (2017)
  • Doug LaFleur (2006)
  • Renee Montgomery (2013)
  • Teresa Ramirez (2019)
