The Iowa Association of School Boards recognizes that learning and leadership on the part of school board members makes a difference at the board table and for students.
At IASB’s 67th Annual Con-vention on Nov. 15, Gilmore City-Bradgate school board member Ron Warren was hon-ored for making that difference. Through IASB’s Better Boardsmanship Awards Pro-gram, Warren received an Award of Achievement certifi-cate. This award recognizes board members who put forth extra time and energy to strengthen their boardsmanship abilities through formal in-service programs, workshops and other commitments such as advocating with legislators or serving on statewide committees or boards. Warren also serves on the IASB Board of Directors, representing District 2 in north central Iowa.
IASB board president Patti Fields commended Warren for his hard work. “Each individual in this select group of board members takes extra steps to make sure they are informed and capable as they strive to improve outcomes for students,” Fields said.
More than 60 school board members were recipients of this acclaimed award.
