May is School Board Recognition month. Volunteer school board members serve thousands of hours each year working to ensure every Iowa student receives a solid education. School Board Recognition Month is an opportunity to say thanks to the nearly 2,000 men and women who are "Building Brighter Futures " in Iowa schools. Roland-Story school board members include (from left) Ted Hammes, Steve Peterson, Board President Boyd Brodie, Vice President Marc Soderstrum, and Mike Retallick.
