The Union Community School District is joining with other communities throughout Iowa this spring to honor its elected school board members during Iowa School Board Recognition Month during May. This year’s theme, “Building Brighter Futures,” recognizes that Iowa’s volunteer school board members are providing leadership, through responsibilities ranging from strong financial stewardship to ensuring high-quality curriculum, to make sure all students are prepared for a “brighter future” when they graduate.

Currently serving on the local school board are Joe Connolly, President, Lisa Anton, Jim Barz, James Bronner, Bart Frush, Cathy Niebergall and Dawn Jensen.

“These men and women volunteer countless hours of unpaid time to provide the best possible education for our students, and we want to recognize that in our communities,” said Union Superintendent, Neil Mullen.
