TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Council declared on Tuesday, January 11, that January is School Board Member Recognition Month.
According to the proclamation presented to council members, Trussville recognizes the importance of public education in our community. The City Council appreciates the vital role of those individuals who, as local school board members, establish policies to ensure an efficient, effective school system.
“I just really applaud them and want to applaud them,” Council Member Lisa Bright said. “So just thank you for all that you did in the past two years with COVID.”

The proclamation will be presented at the Trussville City Schools Board of Education meeting on Thursday, January 27.
School board members serve as a voice that enables our community to preserve local lay management and control of our public schools.
“We just want to show them our support for a job well done, particularly the last two years that they’ve gone through struggles they’ve done, so hats off to them for the job well done,” Mayor Buddy Choat said.
School board members are charged with representing our local education interests to state and federal government and ensuring compliance with state and federal law.
School board members selflessly devote their knowledge, time, and talents as advocates for our school children.
