Meridian campuses say ‘thank you’

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

They spend countless hours listening to parents, teachers and students and go to training sessions to be able to assist the school administrators to the best of their ability. They have a great responsibility when it comes to finances and spending taxpayers money. And they, members of the school board, do it without any pay.
