Last night, the Grayson County School Board held its first meeting of 2014 at Clarkson Elementary School. Several business items were discussed by the Board, but the monthly meeting began with many students from Clarkson Elementary presenting the School Board and Grayson County School Superintendent Barry Anderson with letters, poems and cards expressing their appreciation for the hard work each does for their school.
Seven Clarkson Elementary teachers were honored by principal Kerry Reeves for receiving National Board Certification. The teachers recognized for this outstanding achievement are Shannon Cates, Joyce Elmore, Kim Keys, Amy Mattingly, Tammy Schultz, Kelly Skaggs, and Rebekah Meredith.
In other Board business, Lawler Elementary was given approval to hold a "Pennies for Patients" fundraiser for the School and Youth Programs of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and it also approved the creation of a full-time bus driver/monitor position.
