January is School Board Recognition Month and an opportunity for local schools and communities to honor Oklahoma’s more than 2,700 elected school board members for their dedication and service to children and schools.
“Providing our community’s children with a solid education is the most important investment we can make,” said Dr. Terry McCarty, Superintendent of Perry Public Schools. “We’re proud of our district, and School Board Recognition Month is the time to say thank you and celebrate the accomplishments of our elected board members.”
The board members of Perry Public Schools contribute countless hours leading the district. Whether it be crafting policies, hiring top-notch administrators, listening to staff and student concerns, attending school functions, or making tough decisions on complex educational and social issues, board members always keep their eyes on the goal of student achievement. They bear responsibility for Perry’s 1,000+ students, 135 employees, and four buildings.
The men and women serving Perry Public Schools are: Jason Proctor, president, Aaron Frable, vice president, Marsha Hartwig, clerk, Marvin Dement, member, and Amy Chenowith, member.
