Long-term school directors are being honored across the state by the Pennsylvania School Boards Association at local board meetings this month. School directors are recognized for years of service at 8 years and up.
Dr. Arlene Loeffler - a member of the Riverview School Board - has far exceeded that, receiving recognition for 36 years of service. She was presented a plaque at Monday’s board meeting, adding her to the PSBA Honor Roll of School Board Service.
“Dr. Loeffler has had a long and storied career, one marked with with relentless service to students, staff, and families for more than three decades. She deserves our appreciation, our praise, and our honor,” says Dr. English, Superintendent of the Riverview School District. “Her long standing reputation of community service is noteworthy.”
PSBA Representative, Jim Summerville, spoke about Dr. Loeffler’s many years of dedicated service to public education on Monday evening. According to Mr. Summerville, most school board directors cite a desire to give back to public education or to improve educational outcomes for students as the primary reason for their service.
“These long-term elected leaders give unselfishly of their time and energy to support and guide our public schools and the students they serve over many years,” he said. “Their efforts, along with those of their fellow board members, reflect the mission of our schools to provide opportunities for success for every student.”
Congratulations to Dr. Arlene Loeffler!
