Hillsboro School Board member Glenn Miller was awarded a bronze award last week for completing course work through the Oregon School Boards Association’s Leadership Institute.

Northwest Regional Education Service District Board member Christine Riley was one of seven participants to receive a platinum award.

Riley represents the Gaston, Sherwood and Tigard-Tualatin school districts for the ESD, which also serves the Hillsboro School District.

The awards were presented at OSBA’s annual convention in Portland and recognized board members for significant levels of achievement in leadership and development. There are four levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum.

“School board members already put in hundreds of hours every year on behalf of Oregon’s children,” said OSBA Executive Director Betsy Miller-Jones. “This is an extra measure of their dedication.”

OSBA is a member services agency for more than 200 locally elected boards serving school districts, education service districts and community colleges. It also provides services to charter schools and their boards.
