The Colorado Association of School Boards has designated the month of January as School Board Appreciation Month, and at the Jan.18 Littleton Public Schools meeting, LPS Superintendent Brian Ewert took a moment to thank LPS Board members Jack Reutzel, Carrie Warren-Gully, Kelly Perez, Jim Stephens and Robert Reichardt for their dedicated service to Littleton Public Schools.
Ewert thanked the board for their integrity, courage and always putting the needs of students first. He also thanked them for:
The time board members spend away from their own families to spend with the “LPS family”
The passion they have for education and for each child’s welfare
The professionalism they exhibit
The knowledge they have regarding the school district and community;
Their tireless advocacy for the resources necessary for continuous improvement in student learning
Their willingness to grapple with the complicated issues that really matter on behalf of kids and families
The positive example they set and the leadership they provide not only at the local level but at the state level, as well.
Ewert also recognized Warren-Gully, who recently concluded her year as president of the Board of Directors for the Colorado Association of School Boards.
“Carrie is an outstanding advocate for the children of Colorado, and her leadership certainly serves as a model for others,” Ewert said. “She is widely known and well-respected for her work on behalf of public education, not just in LPS but across the state, which was quite evident at last month’s CASB conference. Many, many board members and school leaders across Colorado sought her out to shake her hand and personally thank her for her advocacy.”
