WASB acknowledges commitment to professional development
Tomorrow River School District School Board member Kelly Loken has been recognized by the Wisconsin Association of School Boards (WASB) for her commitment to the Tomorrow River School District. Loken earned this recognition by attending training opportunities by the Wisconsin Association of School Boards focused on student achievement and improving public education. WASB Executive Director Dan Rossmiller recognized Loken’s accomplishments at a WASB Regional Meeting held October 3 in Wausau. In just 11 years of service to the District, Loken has achieved the Level 4 Award.
District Administrator Ryan Ruggles said, “We are grateful for Kelly’s commitment to the District and the entire community. She has made a positive impact on the District and cares deeply about our staff, students, and school community. I would like to extend a sincere thank you to her on behalf of the District for her time and efforts.”
The WASB’s Member Recognition Program tracks the professional development of board members, who may be awarded one of five achievement levels based on a points system. Members receive points by attending the state convention, participating in workshops, and a variety of other professional development activities.
Loken said, “I appreciate being recognized by the Wisconsin Association of School Boards, and especially appreciate the trust that this community has shown in me as a School Board member. This is a great District, and I’m proud of what we’ve collectively accomplished during my 11 years on the Board.”
Rossmiller said, “Board members across Wisconsin have shown a commitment to education in their own professional development just as they have for our young people. I thank Kelly for going above and beyond on behalf of the students and community.”
The Wisconsin Association of School Boards is a nonprofit association that provides information and services to Wisconsin school boards in the areas of school law and policymaking, bargaining, legislation, and leadership development.
