Every January school districts across the state and nation honor their board of directors during School Board Recognition Month.

The Olympia School District will recognize its school board with a special program near the start of the meeting on Thursday, January 12, 2023. The recognition begins at 6 p.m. and will be followed by the regular board meeting.

The board recognition will be held in person at the Knox Administrative Center, 111 Bethel St. N.E., Olympia, WA 98506 and via Zoom.

This year marks the 28th year of the annual observance initiated by the National School Boards Association in 1995.

Thank you President Darcy Huffman, Vice President Hilary Seidel, Directors Scott Clifthorne, Maria Flores and Talauna Reed, and Student Representatives Rahma Gaye, Ali Owen, Ru’ya Russell and Christine Zhang.
