Board Secretary McGinnis Awarded

Cheryl McGinnis, Clarkston Community Schools Board of Education Secretary, was recently honored as a recipient of the 2021 President’s Award of Recognition from the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB). 

At a ceremony on August 24th, MASB Executive Director Don Wotruba explained, “Cheryl is one of two people in Clarkston and one of 120 in the state since 1990 to get this award.” 

As a CCS Board of Education member for 15 years, Mrs. McGinnis has completed 29 advanced classes and approximately 1,400 education credits. She explained that it was never her goal to receive the award. She participated in the courses to become a better board member and serve the students of Clarkston Community Schools. 

“I do what I do because it comes from my heart,” said McGinnis. “It’s my passion. I love what I do. I love my community.”
