Whitehall City Schools will join more than 700 school districts throughout Ohio to celebrate January as School Board Recognition Month, Superintendent, Sharee Wells announced January 3, 2022.
“Our school board members are citizen-servants who shoulder critical responsibilities and often make difficult choices for our district, all with minimal pay,” Wells said. “Their focus is always on the future success of the children in our district. Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”
Serving as a link between the community and classroom, school board members are elected to establish the policies that provide the framework for public schools.
“It’s more important than ever that communities support public education so that today’s students are prepared to be productive citizens and the leaders of tomorrow,” Wells said. “Please take a moment and tell school board members thanks for caring about our children and giving so much to our community. Let them know we support them and that their dedicated service is recognized and truly appreciated.”

Mike Adkins –10 years
Darryl Hammock – 6 years
Jeffrey Lees – 3.5 years
Jayne Shannon-new board member
