Pokorney Leaves the Board After 12 Years of Service

The district would like to thank Patti Pokorney for the 12 years of service that she gave while serving on the school board. During that time she served in many leadership roles on the board, including the chairperson, and on countless committees. Some might remember Pokorney out there carrying a backpack and an instrument case to help determine walking distances when school attendance boundaries changed. She has been through the opening of a new elementary school, several referendums, contract negotiations, school start time changes and more.

Student success has been a priority for Pokorney. She believes every child should have an opportunity to learn and parents and community members need to be advocates for education. Pokorney believes that education doesn't stop once you are outside of the school or have graduated, but rather it's a lifelong process.

The district knows that Pokorney will still be around to serve and help out in any way she can, but as this chapter closes, BHM Schools recognizes her dedication and the way she "made a difference" for our students, families and staff.
