There are over 3,400 school board members in the state of Ohio. Each of these men and women has dedicated a significant portion of their life to the improvement of public education and the betterment of their community. The Ohio school Boards Association is proud to say thank you to a very special group of these members. Since 2002, OSBA has recognized board members completing their twenty-fifth year of service at the Capital Conference.

Below are some extremely dedicated individuals who have gone above and beyond in donating their time as citizen servants.
