Blue Earth Area’s Bly named to All-State School Board

MINNEAPOLIS — Blue Earth Area School Board member Frankie Bly was named to the 2019 All-State School Board, which is the Minnesota School Boards Association’s (MSBA) most prestigious award. The award was given recently at MSBA’s annual Leadership Conference at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

 Since 1971, MSBA’s awards committee selects up to seven individual board members to the All-State School Board. There are nearly 2,300 school board members in Minnesota. Board members are nominated by superintendents, fellow board members, parents or community members for their outstanding contributions to public education. Bly was one of six board members chosen for the award this year.

 “The All State School Board represents the highest example of board service. These are school board members who are committed to student achievement, determined to build support for their local schools and unwavering in their pursuit of what’s best for students,” MSBA Executive Director Kirk Schneidawind said.

 People nominating Frankie for the award wrote: “It would be easy for someone with Frankie’s experience to step outside of his governance role; however, he demonstrates what his role as a board member entails through his work and actions. I am always impressed with his tireless advocacy for public school students in Minnesota. He knows that a strong public school system is important for all students in our district, state and nation.”

Criteria for the award includes MSBA training, strong leadership; excellence in boardsmanship; communication skills; visionary thinking; demonstration of concern for students, staff and taxpayers; and support for the nomination from stakeholders.

MSBA is a private nonprofit organization that provides cost-saving programs, management support, board training, advocacy, research and referral for Minnesota’s public schools.
