Stover honored for service on Tyrone Area School Board

Lee Stover, Tyrone Area School Board member and president, was honored last month by the Pennsylvania School Boards Association at the recent statewide educational conference held in Hershey.
The 160 board members, ranging in years of service from 8 to 40, were recognized Oct. 11.
Stover received recognition for 12 years of service. He was presented with a certificate adding him to the PSBA “Honor Roll of School Board Service.”
PSBA President Lou Ann Evans, a Centre County school director, spoke about the recipients and their years of dedicated volunteer service to children, the community and public education.
“School directors continually are spending more of their personal time on school-related activities,” said Evans. “Sixty-five percent of them devote 16 hours or more a month to school board business. That shows a real commitment on their part.”
According to Evans, these individuals put in, on the average, about two-and-a-half working days per month of nonpaid, volunteer service as school directors.
“They exemplify leadership and dedication, giving unselfishly to their communities, students and the public schools,” said Evans. “Their efforts, along with those of their fellow board members, reflect their dedication to giving our children the opportunity to gain knowledge through the best educational system possible.”
Stover was also recognized at the recent Tyrone Area School Board meeting for his achievement.
