FHSD Celebrates School Board Recognition Week – Jan 22-28, 2017

Francis Howell School District (FHSD) students benefit every day from the dedicate energies and countless hours devoted by the seven members of our Board of Education. During the week of Jan. 22-28, 2017, FHSD and communities across the state will honor the dedicated service of local boards of education during School Board Recognition Week as declared by former Governor Jay Nixon.

Board members, elected by local constituents, do not receive compensation for their efforts, and yet they contribute hundreds of hours each year to leading their respective school district. Whether they are crafting policies, listening to staff and student concerns, or recognizing outstanding programs, board members always keep goal in mind - student achievement. They
play a vital role in the education of our students, and their contributions are what help our schools and communities continue to grow and improve every year.

It takes strong schools to build a strong community,” said FHSD Superintendent Dr. Mary Hendricks-Harris, “and the countless volunteer hours the Board members put in to insuring our schools help every child learn at high levels is appreciated.”

FHSD employees and students are grateful to the members of our Board of Education for their unfailing commitment to giving our students and community a voice and hope for a better future. This week, please help us show our appreciation to the FHSD Board of Education.

Thank you to the members of the 2016-17 Francis Howell Board of Education for their leadership and dedicated service: Mark Lafata, president; Rene Cope, vice-president; Chad Lange, treasurer; Sandra Ferguson, director, Mike Hoehn, director; Mike Sommer, director; Michelle Walker, director.
