Press Release - HONONEGAH COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL HONORS SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS 2018





Rockton, Ill. (November 13, 2018) – November 15, 2018, marks the tenth official statewide observance of School Board Members Day in Illinois. This annual event provides the opportunity to honor board members’ commitment and dedication to providing a local voice for our District’s educational decisions.

When it comes to public service, school board members are some of the most selfless volunteers around. They are your neighbors, friends, co-workers and parents. They are also our advocates fighting for quality educational opportunities for every student. Board members craft a vision, mission, and develop goals that are expressed to them by community parents and residents. They take their role seriously and view their position as a way to create educational opportunities for every student. Over 6,000 board members in Illinois serve without the expectation of a paycheck. They are the advocates we have elected to provide our voice in public school systems. 

School board members of course attend many meetings, but those meeting represent just a fraction of the actual time that they devote to being an educational leader for their districts. They attend extracurricular events, participate in professional development opportunities to become better leaders, and work many hours to ensure students have access to educational resources they need to succeed. Their sacrifices may often be overlooked, but their work is of the greatest importance.

School board members more than any other official must listen to the voices of their community to help formulate and support a vision for their district.  Quality educational opportunities are a necessity of successful communities. High quality public schools drive the local economy and promote growth within the community. The leadership shown by board members impacts not only the school district but most importantly enhances the lives of every resident.

Our thanks to the Hononegah Board of Education: 

David Kurlinkus, President
Mary Lewis, Vice President 
Sandy Fordell, Secretary 
Diane LaForge
