In January each year comes School Board Recognition Month, which was observed by the Norristown Area School District board of school directors at their Thursday evening work session, where district superintendent Janet Samuels thanked the board for their commitment to the district’s students.

“Our school board members serve out of a desire to make a difference in the school district and the greater community,” said Samuels.

The 500-some school districts in Pennsylvania observe School Board Recognition Month, she said. For school board directors, elections are held every two years, and they are staggered, and the directors serve four-year terms.

“Seven thousand-plus children benefit from the decisions that you make on a daily basis,” said Samuels, to her colleagues.

Student board members Harry Olafsen and Sterling Williams helped pass roses out to the other board members who were present.

Board president Pamela Assenmacher turned to Samuels: “It is our honor and privilege to work for you and the students of our district,” she said, smiling.
