The North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) presented its prestigious County Commissioners of the Year Award to the McDowell County Board of County Commissioners.
Touted by their local board of education as county commissioners that give extraordinary support to their students, teachers, and schools, the McDowell County Board of Commissioners remain dedicated to maintaining a solid working relationship with the board of education. Such commitment is visible through their work with the school board on needed space for the Early College Program. Doing what benefits the children of the county the most is the guiding principle for these commissioners.
The award is given to a board of county commissioners that received nomination by the local board of education in recognition of their extraordinary efforts. The McDowell County Board of County Commissioners was recognized during the Awards Ceremony of the NCSBA 47th Annual Conference for Board Member Development in Greensboro on November 17.
