The WSSDA released its yearly list of "Boards of Distinction" this week, and Pullman's School Board is the only one in Eastern Washington that made the cut. Pullman School Board President Susan Weed said the board is made up of five elected and appointed officials, and they all share a passion for learning.
"The School Board couldn't ask for a better group of people," said Weed. "Even though we don't always agree on everything, we work very well together, so that's good."
Weed is currently in Bellevue for the annual School Board Directors Conference, where two of the fifteen school boards will be named "Board of the Year." The WSSDA will chose one large district, and one small district. Pullman is eligible for the small district award.
