The school year may be over, but your friends at the WCEA are already planning for next year. Here’s a sneak peek at the 2018-2019 WCEA desk calendar. New and returning members will be able to get their calendar at the opening session on August 13th.
At its annual meeting on April 24th, the Webster County Education Association elected Lindsay Morris as its vice president, Allen and Tila Boyce as co-treasurers, and Lisa Fleming to an at-large position on the executive committee.
Morris teaches kindergarten at Glade Elementary and has been recognized as one of the top teachers in West Virginia. She has been instrumental in helping organize and guide the WCEA through the recent work stoppage and help organize its political activities.
Allen and Tila Boyce begin their third term as co-treasurers. Tila teaches 3rd grade at Webster Springs Elementary School and Allen teaches math at Webster County High School. The pair play a crucial behind-the-scenes role in managing the day-to-day activities of the WCEA. Tila also serves as Association Representative at Webster Springs Elementary and plays an indispensable role in serving and advocating for our members there.
Fleming teaches 4th grade at Glade Elementary. Throughout her time with the WCEA, Fleming has always been willing to take on communications and organizations duties both within her school and the county. During the recent work stoppage, she was crucial in keeping members in her building informed and active.
