School Board Week Jan. 25-31

School Board Week Jan. 25-31
School board members donate their
time and efforts to ensure that our students
receive a first-class education and
an opportunity for future success in life.
School Board Week is a chance for the
community to thank these individuals for
their commitment to education and to
the students of Pickett County.
On behalf of Pickett County Schools,
we would like to say, "Thank You" to our
board members, from left to right, Jerry
Mitchell, Terrell Garner, Jimmy Storie
and John Reagan. We appreciate all you
do for our children. Board members are
shown here with Pickett County Executive
Stephen Bilbrey as he signs a proclamation
designating Jan. 25-31 as School
Board Week in Pickett County.

WHEREAS, an excellent public education
system is vital to the quality of life of our communities;
WHEREAS, school board members represent
a tremendous resource as local decision
makers, responding to the challenge of creating
21st Century schools that meet Tennessee's
higher education standards; and
WHEREAS, school board members serve
their communities by representing the interests
of school children and preparing them for the
future; and
WHEREAS, the men and women elected by
the people as members of our local school board
deserve recognition and thanks for their countless
hours of service to public education in Tennessee.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Stephen Bilbrey,
County Executive of Pickett County, do hereby
proclaim the week of January 25-31, 2009,
School Board Appreciation Week and urge all
citizens to join me in this worthy observance,
