About the toughest elected position is that of School Board Member. Talk about being close to the action. Parents, student, tax payers, teachers, administrators all know who their school board representatives are and they have no problem giving them an ear full since they are so available.
Bryan Thais and Melissa Turner will have an open house tonight to thank them for their service to the Vincennes Community Schools and if you've got a few minutes head out to the Administration Center between 5:30 and 7 and shake their hand. South Knox's Larry Holscher also has retired from his school board position. His reception was last week.
It's a tough job and there are no easy answers to all the challenges our schools face today. To take on those challenges with dwindling resources and rising problems within our society is really a comittment.
Thanks Larry. Thanks Melissa. Thanks Bryan. Great job!
