School Board Appreciation Month
January is school board appreciation month. Elkin City Schools Board of Education has welcomed three new members recently: Dr. Johnny Blevins, Mr. Earl Blackburn and Mrs. Jennifer Kleinheksel.  They have joined the school board team with Dr. Richard Brinegar who serves as Board Chairman and Mr. Larry Wagoner who serves as Board Vice-Chairman.
Elkin City Schools children benefit every day from the hard work of our school board and we want to take the time to thank our members for being dedicated leaders so all our children receive a quality education. Thanks to the hard work they have done in the past and will continue to do.  Our children are preparing for a bright future.

School boards meet on a regular monthly schedule, but the time spent in board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours school board members spend. School board members exemplify local citizen control and decision making in education. They volunteer hundreds of hours and an immeasurable amount of energy leading our district and assuring our schools are providing the best education possible for the children of our community.  

Too often we neglect to recognize the dedication and hard work of local school board members who represent us.  The staff of ECS and I appreciate the role the school board plays in our schools and communities and throughout the state. We salute the Elkin City Schools Board of Education whose dedication and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible.  We applaud them for their vision and voice to help shape a better tomorrow.
This week’s WIFM “Spotlight on Elkin City Schools" is recorded by Dr. Myra Cox, Superintendent of Elkin City Schools and is sponsored by State Farm Insurance and your local State Farm Agent, Mr. Steve Owings.
