educational distinction throughout our system,” says McMullan. “Our Board of
Education is truly honored to be recognized for these awards. These
achievements are made possible by their dedication, exemplary service and high
standards for our students, staff and parents. We look forward to continuing the
legacy of educational excellence!”
