School Board Recognition Day

Dear Parents, Guardians, Teachers and Community Stakeholders,

November 15th is Illinois School Board Recognition Day—a time to say a formal ‘thank you’ for the work of our board of education members.  Our board of education members volunteer their time and service to the children and communities in Burnham, Calumet City, Dolton and South Holland, Illinois. These are exciting and challenging times in public education. The decisions that must be made are difficult ones. School board members in Dolton School District 149 develop policies and make tough decisions that help shape the future of our education system, and in turn our community.  The district theme this year is accountability assuring that all children succeed.

Showing appreciation for the important work of school boards should be a year-round process, but too often we neglect to recognize the dedication and hard work of these men and women who represent us.

On Wednesday November 18, 2015 the staff and students of our district are asking all members of the community to take a moment and thank a school board member. Thank them for giving of their time and fulfilling this civic responsibility to make local control of public schools in our community possible.

We applaud them for their commitment, vision and their willingness to accept the responsibility of serving in public education and helping all children reach their highest potential.  The men and women serving Dolton School District 149 are:

Darlene Gray Everett, President                                

Lolita Crisler-Liggons, Vice President                      

Bertha Jolly, Secretary                                               

Pamela Eldridge, Member                                                     

Rayya Ghani, Member                                                 

Kim Y. Knight-Anderson, Member                                       

Wilbur Tillman, Member                                           



Dr. Shelly Davis-Jones
Dolton School District 149
