School boards elect OSBA Board for 2021

Three contested races will bring new faces to the OSBA Board of Directors in 2021 as it wrestles with the ongoing pandemic and a full legislative session.

The OSBA elections wrapped up Friday, Dec. 18. School boards chose 10 members to sit on the OSBA Board. The board offers guidance for the association as it advocates for stable and adequate funding and provides local boards with support and development.

Dawn Watson of Phoenix-Talent won the race for the Southern Region (position 5), Jesse Lippold of Salem-Keizer won the Marion Region (position 11), and Katrina Doughty of the Multnomah Education Service District will hold the Multnomah Region (position 17).

 Congratulations to our School Board Chairperson, Dawn Watson, for being elected as the Southern region representative to the OSBA Board for 2021.
