Governor Wes Moore Names January 2024 “Maryland School Board Recognition Month”

Jennifer Beltz

Early this month Maryland Governor Wes Moore released a Proclamation naming January 2024 “Maryland School Board Recognition Month.” In his Proclamation recognizing local School Boards’ “work to ensure a rigorous and world-class educational experience for every Maryland student,” the Governor specified how greatly Maryland students benefit from School Boards “providing access to essential academic, social, emotional, and economic supports.” The Governor’s Proclamation comes on the heels of Senator Chris Van Hollen’s related statement in the Congressional Record last year, praising Maryland local school boards’ devotion, commitment and resilience.

Also in honor of Maryland School Board Recognition Month in January 2024, Maryland State Board of Education President Clarence C. Crawford is joining MABE Executive Director Milt Nagel in proudly sharing with each of Maryland’s dedicated local school boards a Certificate of Appreciation, singling out each respective school board’s dedicated leadership of their local schools and students, and applauding their “hard work, dedication, and achievement.”

THANK YOU to local School Boards throughout Maryland from the entire team at MABE for your continuing efforts in working to meet our collective vision of serving as a champion for excellence in public education. Your talents, innovation and selfless efforts are very much appreciated by so many throughout our State!
