January is School Board Recognition Month, and U.S.D. 403, Otis-Bison joins other public schools across our state to say thank you to these public servants who are leading success in our community.

These extraordinary seven individuals provide the leadership and vision to make great things happen in our schools. They volunteer countless hours by attending meetings, reading reports and discussing ideas. They also participate in workshops and seminars so that they can stay on top of education issues and trends. They provide an invaluable service to our community.

Our school board members develop policies and make tough decisions that help shape the future of our education system. They bear responsibility and oversight for an annual budget of $3.25 million, 247 students counting virtual students, 53 employees and 5 buildings.

The men and women serving U.S.D. 403, Otis-Bison and their years of service are Bernard Juno (19 years), Gary Yost (11 years), Camie Hlavaty (3 years), Everett Royer (1 year), Pam Welsh, (1 year), Karen Maier (1 year) and Robert Mitchell (1 year).

We are so fortunate that they are willing to sacrifice their time and talents to advocate for our community and our schools. Their job is sometimes challenging and they don’t often hear words of encouragement and appreciation.
