Three Board of Education members at Four County Career Center will receive the Ohio School Boards Association’s Veteran Board Member Award at the association’s 65th annual Capital Conference and Trade Show on Sunday, November 8. The event is being held virtually this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Veteran Board Member Award is given to school board members in recognition of 25 years of service. Of the nearly 3,500 board members in Ohio, only 33 will receive the honor in 2020. Receiving this award from the Four County Career Center board are Brian Baker who has served on the Northwest Ohio Educational Service Center board for 25 years and the Four County board for 14 years; Ron Crawford who has served on the Northeastern Local School board for 8 years, the Northwest Ohio Educational Service Center board for 17 years and the Four County board for 6 years; and Chris Oberlin who has served on the Defiance City Schools board for 25 years and the Four County board for 24 years.
“Brian, Ron and Chris are outstanding board members. Their dedication to Four County Career Center is greatly appreciated. I feel very fortunate to have them on our board and consider it a privilege to work with them.” states Tim Meister, Superintendent at Four County Career Center.
In its 65th year, the Ohio School Boards Association leads the way to educational excellence by serving Ohio’s public school board members and the diverse districts they represent through superior service, unwavering advocacy and creative solutions.
