The Full Commission recognized The Richmond County School District for achieving the distinguished board status on Tuesday.
This recognition is from the Georgia School Board's Association and was designed to recognize districts that have good strategic plans, maintain accreditation and a balanced budget.
Superintendent Dr. Angela Pringle was there as well as several other school officials as Commissioners praised their efforts to improve the district.
"This is something our community needs to be aware of. How wonderful & the great things that are going on so their minds won't be clouded," says Commissioner Dennis Williams.
This is the 3rd consecutive year that the District has received this status.
