Students from Cedar Elementary School helped celebrate Missouri School Board Recognition Week during a special presentation at the Lee’s Summit R-7 Board of Education’s Jan. 23 meeting.

The annual recognition week is Jan. 26 through Feb. 1 this year.

The students thanked the Board of Education with a special presentation focusing on how the Board members positively impact students, schools and the community.

School Board Recognition Week, sponsored by the Missouri School Boards’ Association, recognizes the more than 3,600 school board members across the state. These public servants are elected by local constituents and do not receive compensation for their tireless efforts.

The goal of this event is to build awareness and understanding of the important function an elected Board of Education plays in communities and schools.

R-7 School District Board of Education members are President Ron Baker; Vice President Jack Wiley, Patti Buie, Terri Harmon, Chris Storms, Phyllis Balagna and Bob White.
