John M. Lenane, a member of the Minisink Valley School Board, has been presented the New York State School Boards Association Master of Boardsmanship Award  to honor his graduation from the Association's School Board Institute.  The award is currently the highest honor bestowed by the Association's Leadership Development Recognition Program and recognizes the extensive time, effort and commitment required of exemplary board members who strive continually to expand their knowledge of education and skill in school district governance.  Timothy Kremer, the Association's Executive director, presented the certificate, commended John for his exceptional dedication, and noted that "the Institute is an excellent development opportunity, providing board members and superintendents practical knowledge and skills to govern the district and approve student achievement."


To qualify for this achievement, John earned 260 credits including a series of eight intensive courses requiring a significant commitment of time and effort by participants.  Courses probed school district systems, governance team roles and responsibilities, communication with district stakeholders, goal-setting, resource alignment, assessment and accountability.  John Lenane has served on the school board since 1995, eight of those years as president.
