Cape school board honored with prestigious award

CGPS Board earns state award
The Cape Girardeau Public Schools Board has been named the winner of the 2019 Governance Team Award.  The prestigious award presented by the Missouri School Boards’ Association (MSBA) is based on the school board’s outstanding commitment to ongoing professional development in areas such as student achievement, school law and finance, board operations and contemporary issues in education.  The award also recognizes their commitment to regional and statewide leadership, and to active participation in legislative advocacy for public schools and the students they serve. Mr. Tony Smee, pictured, accepted the award June 8 during the 2019 MSBA’s Leadership Summit in St. Charles. Only 33 school boards in the State received this honor.  (Also pictured, MSBA Executive Director Melissa Randol and MSB President Mike Pratte.)
