Natchitoches Parish School Board members voted to elect Reba Phelps as Board President and Beverly Broadway as Vice President for the 2022 year at its meeting Thursday evening, Jan. 13.
“It is an incredible honor to be elected as Natchitoches Parish School Board President,” said Phelps. “I am so proud of all of the hard work that we all have accomplished as a team.”
Phelps explained that not many boards have faced the challenges the Natchitoches Parish School Board has faced together including electing a new Superintendent, keeping all the little scholars safe during a worldwide pandemic, fighting tooth and nail to solve connectivity problems in the parish that affects student achievement, and updating facilities while building transparency and public trust.
“This is only the beginning of the great things that we will continue as a team,” she added. “I would like to thank President Steven Harris for his tireless work and dedication this past year and I’m super excited to work with Mrs. Beverly Broadway. It’s going to be a great year!”
Over the past three years Broadway has had the pleasure of serving alongside fellow board members whose compassion and concern for the children in the district is unparalleled.
“I am incredibly honored to serve in the capacity of Vice President of the Natchitoches Parish School Board,” she said. “I am looking forward to an amazing year of continued growth and positive movement forward throughout our entire district. I would also like to extend a special thank you to our previous Board leadership for helping to pave the way and lay the foundation for the unity and cohesiveness we now enjoy.”
