JANUARY 2017                                                        Brashear, Missouri



Missourians benefit every day from the dedicated energies and countless hours devoted by a group of more than 3,600 men and women from communities across the state.  These public servants are elected by local constituents and do not receive compensation for their tireless efforts.  These men and women are the local school board members of Missouri.

During the week of January 22-28, communities across the state will honor the dedicated service of their local boards of education during School Board Recognition Week, as proclaimed by Governor Jay Nixon.  The goal is to build awareness and understanding of the important function an elected board of education plays in communities and school.  All Missouri citizens are asked to recognize the important contributions of these men and women and focus attention on the vital role these public officials play in the education of Missouri’s children.

The students and staff of the Adair County R-II School District extend sincere appreciation for the dedication of those who serve on the district’s Board of Education.
