NCSBA appoints local school official to legislative committee

Stanly County’s vice chairman for the Board of Education has been appointed to serve on the N.C. School Board Association’s Legislative Committee.

Glenda Gibson was selected to serve a two-year term on the committee.

“I am extremely excited and quite honored to have been chosen to serve on the Legislative Committee,” Gibson said. “I look forward to having a role in representing school boards across our wonderful state and most importantly advocating for our teachers, administrators, and students by serving on the NCSBA’s Legislative Committee.”

The primary role of the committee is to develop and propose a 2-year legislative agenda to the NCSBA Delegate Assembly.

Ten school board representatives from across the state are selected to the committee. They will join the NCSBA Board of Directors and eight district presidents who also serve on the committee.

Established in 1937, the NCSBA is an advocate for public school education. It is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership association that represents all 115 local boards of education in the state and the Board of Education of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation.

NCSBA’s mission is to provide advocacy, leadership and services that enable school boards to govern at the highest level.
