Cherokee County School Board trustee Willie Crosby has received a 10 year service award from the South Carolina School Boards Association (SCBSA)

Crosby is one of 38 school board members statewide who will have 10 years of service during 2006. He received a lapel pin, a certificate, and a letter from SCBSA Executive Director Dr. Paul Khrone.

Crosby has served on the school board since 1996.

“I am very grateful the community has shown the trust and confidence to allow me to serve on the school board for this period of time,” Crosby said. “I feel we are placed in positions of leadership to make decisions that will benefit our children and the education system in our county.”

Crosby has one of the longest tenures on the local school board.

Board chairperson Sandra Greene and Ola Copeland will be recognized next year for 15 years of service.

In 2006, the SCSBA will have seven school board members reach 15 years of service; five will reach 20 years; three will reach 25 years; one will have 30 and one will reach 35 years of service.
