School Board Recognition Month

January is School Board Recognition Month in Oregon.  Creswell School District is joining with other districts throughout the state to recognize the important contributions school board members make to our communities.

School board members contribute their time and talents toward advancement of public education. They represent a continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision-making in education.

The students of Creswell School District are served well by their School Board of Directors. Their commitment and dedication to our community is greatly appreciated.

It is with high regard that we give this recognition to our dedicated local leaders: Board Chair Mike Anderson, Board Vice Chair Lacey Risdal, Director David Eusted, Director Kandice Lemhouse, Director Mark Parker, Director Debi Wilkerson, and Director Ashley Miller
