Murphy appointed to KSBA board

J-E Editor
Webster County will now have a voice in one of the largest groups of elected officials in the commonwealth of Kentucky. 
At the annual Kentucky School Board Association (KSBA) conference last week in Louisville, KSBA president Allen Kennedy appointed Webster County Board Member Venita Murpy to fill a vacancy as Second Region regional chairperson on the Kentucky School Boards Association (KSBA) Board of Directors.

“I’m proud that Venita represents the Webster County Board of Education on a state level,” said Superintendent Dr. Rachel Yarbrough. “She certainly has expertise and experience to strengthen the KSBA Board of Directors.”
 The Board of Directors meets at least quarterly to set association policy, legislative positions and annual budgets. The board also works closely with the association’s professional staff on issues important to Kentucky’s public elementary and secondary education system. Murphy will not be part of that decision making process.
“It is an honor to be appointed to the KSBA board,” said Murphy. “I am looking forward to representing District 2.
Murphy was appointed in 2013 to fill a vacancy on the Webster County school board when board member David Higgins stepped down after only eight months after being elected. In November of 2014, the first general election following the appointment, Webster County voters elected Murphy to complete Higgins’ term.
Her membership on the Webster County board is Murphy’s second time as a board of education member. She served on the Providence Indepedant Schools’ board of education for 11 years and was chairman of the board in 2006 during Webster-Providence merger talks.
Murphy works in quality control for General Electric and attended Murray State University. She is active in her church and is a matron in the Order of the Eastern Star. She becomes one of 12 regional chairpersons on the KSBA board.
