Edward Szumowski, president of the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District Board of Education, has been honored as School Board Member of the Week, part of an eight-week campaign celebrating school board service by the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA).
The campaign – entitled “Do You Know Who I Am?” – tells the story of individual school board members such as Szumowski and the contributions they make in their communities. The campaign runs through March 21.
Szumowski has served on the Broadalbin-Perth Board of Education since 2009. A graduate of Broadalbin-Perth High School, he served in the U.S. Army and studied history at SUNY Albany.
According to Szumowski, the best part of serving on the school board "is the occassional knowledge that one has been some use in the betterment of the community."
