Dottie Darsie, member of the Caldwell County Board of Education since 1994, who has served two terms as Chairman and Vice-Chairman during her tenure, has been elected to another two-year term to the North Carolina School Boards Action Center, a legislative arm of the North Carolina School Boards Association.
As a member of the North Carolina School Boards Association Board of Directors from 2003 to 2007, she became involved with the National School Boards Association Federal Relations Network and Advocacy Institute, where she joined hundreds of school board and state school boards association leaders in Washington, D. C. to urge members of Congress to make public policy in support of public education. For the last 14 years, she has continued her involvement in governmental relations by serving on the North Carolina School Boards Action Center.
“Darsie has supported and advocated for the needs of students and teachers in public schools at the national level for more than a decade,” said Superintendent Dr. Steve Stone. “We are fortunate to have her as a local Board member who speaks to national policies affecting our district, and then she becomes the voice for our students and teachers in the nation’s Capital.”
Founded in 1940, NSBA is a not-for-profit organization representing state associations of school boards and their more than 90,000 local school board members throughout the U.S. Working with and through our state associations, NSBA advocates for equity and excellence in public education through school board leadership.
