It is School Board Recognition Week Oct. 21 through 25, a perfect time to recognize the seven men and women who serve on the Pine Bush Central School District Board of Education.
The job of a school board member isn’t an easy one. They have a commitment to public education and take on one of the most important citizen responsibilities – overseeing the education of our youth.
The seven men and women who have taken on that job in Pine Bush are:
- Gretchen Meier, president
- Cara Robertson, vice president
- Kristin Graessle
- Dori Johnson
- Kristi Kheiralla
- Ross Tompkins
- Matthew Watkins
The Pine Bush Board of Education members are volunteers; they do not get paid for their service to the district. They are dedicated to improving education here in Pine Bush with our children as their primary focus. Our board members devote many hours to the district, researching issues, learning about the processes they must adhere to, attending school events, building relationships within the community and advocating with local leaders on behalf of our children and our district.
“Our board members are dedicated and hard working,” said Superintendent of Schools Tim Mains. “They spend so much of their own time working to benefit our children and make Pine Bush a better district. I am proud to salute them and celebrate their service.”
