MOESC Board Member Mary Dixon Recognized
Mary Dixon, a member of the Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center’s Board of Governors and a member of the school board at Pioneer Career and Technology Center, was recognized March 11th at the Central Region Spring Conference of the Ohio School Boards Association.
The Ohio School Boards Association Award of Achievement recognizes board members for their willingness to enroll and participate in workshops and conferences, volunteer for service to their association and work on behalf of their own board. The Award of Achievement is a special honor and distinction available only to Ohio school board members. To earn the Award of Achievement, a board member must complete an application that documents you have obtained 100 credits toward the award. These credits must be earned within a two-year period.
Dixon has served as MOESC’s board president for 4 years, as well as attended the Board Leader Institute, which is sponsored by the OSBA and offers in-depth workshops taught by the leading experts on topics ranging from student achievement, finance and school law to legislative issues, curriculum and board development. She also attended the Capital Conference in November, Ohio’s premier continuing education program that helps school district governance teams improve student learning and achievement.
Dixon said she invests because of the children. “I feel very responsible for providing for kids every opportunity we can however we can. It’s our duty. It’s what we as adults are required to do: to make the lives of those that come after us better.”
MOESC Superintendent Kevin D. Kimmel praised Dixon for her achievement. “Her dedication to the students that we serve is evident as she has tirelessly worked to improve the services we provide at Mid-Ohio. We are so grateful for her leadership and we are very proud of her achievement.”
