The month of January provides a unique opportunity to acknowledge a special group of volunteer elected officials in education. It is SCHOOL BOARD RECOGNITION MONTH, and it offers communities across Michigan a way to acknowledge the continuing efforts of local and ISD school board members in providing leadership and guidance to local school districts. We are pleased to recognize the members of the Watervliet Public Schools Board of Education and sincerely thank them for serving our school district with dedication, dignity, and Panther pride. Kimberly Adams, Brian Gruszczyk, Wendy Hart, Eric Laws, Amanda Morlock-Fisher, John Oliphant, and Bill Spaulding, thank you for the work you do to assure that excellence is always a priority at Watervliet Public Schools.
