ASHEBORO — Members of the Asheboro City Board of Education attended the North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) District 5 meeting in Forsyth County on Wednesday, Sept. 20. Board members received professional development and training via several breakout sessions that were offered.

While at the meeting, the Asheboro City Board of Education was presented with a 2017 NCSBA Silver Bell Award, which recognizes boards where every member has actively worked towards meeting their 12 hours of training during the July 1-June 30 time frame. Chairman Kyle Lamb accepted the award on behalf of the board.

The Silver Bell Award reflects school board members’ commitment to training excellence for the 2016-17 NCSBA Academy Year of the NCSBA’s Academy of School Boardsmanship.
