Sudduth says goodbye to Board of Education

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. – The Jefferson County Board of Education bid farewell to longtime board member Scott Sudduth during their regular board meeting June 25, 2018. It was Sudduth’s final meeting after more than a decade of service on the board. He was first elected in 2006 and had been serving as board president.

Sudduth said during the meeting Monday that being on the board had been among the most rewarding experiences of his life.

“I often say you can tell much about the health and viability of a community based on its support and commitment for education,” Sudduth said, addressing the citizens of Jefferson County. “Whether it’s your continuous strong support for the school levy, or your stand in solidarity with our teachers and service personnel for better benefits and wages, the citizens of Jefferson County are passionate about quality education. It shows and it matters.”

In a sometimes emotional speech, Sudduth also thanked his family for their support, and thanked the staff at Jefferson County Schools and his fellow board members for the work they do to provide an excellent education to students.

 “It has been a real honor to serve with all of you and to help contribute to an outstanding school system.”

Sudduth represented the Shepherdstown District on the Board. He was elected to three terms before the 2018 Primary Election when he was the fourth highest vote getter in a field of eight candidates. Three seats were open.
