The Elbert County School district is joining in a statewide celebration this week to salute the efforts of local school board members.
The week of March 18-22 has been proclaimed School Board Appreciation Week in Georgia.
The weeklong observance calls attention to the contributions of local boards of education.
Elbert County School Superintendent Rick Higginbotham expressed his gratitude to members of the Elbert County School Board.
“This board of education puts in a lot of time and effort that they are really not paid for to help make certain our policies and procedures have a positive impact on the students of Elbert County”, said Higginbotham. “I am so proud of these people for their courage and willingness to take a stand, even despite the pressures they may be feeling outside of the school board.”
The celebration is sponsored by the Georgia School Boards Association.
