The Newbury Local Schools formally welcomed and swore in David Lair and Terri Rice to the Board of Education at the Organizational Meeting on Jan. 13. Lair and Rice are both actively involved members of the Newbury Local Schools Community.
Lair is a 1969 graduate of Newbury High School, a veteran of the U.S. Army including a tour of duty in Vietnam, and following that service earned degrees in Business Administration at the Bachelor’s and Masters level from Lake Erie College and John Carroll University. He lives in Newbury with his wife Landa. According to Lair, “I am extremely honored to join the Newbury Board of Education, whose efforts over the past two years have enabled us to later this year join the highly rated West Geauga School District, providing our students with tremendous new opportunities and saving our residents significant tax dollars. I look forward as a Board member working with our dedicated professional administrators to help ensure a positive transition for Newbury students and staff, as well as collaborating with the West Geauga Board of Education and local elected officials at the township and county level.”
Terri Rice is a 13-year resident of Newbury. She has two grown children who graduated from Newbury High School and are married with children of their own. Rice enjoys spending time with her family including three grandchildren, two foster children, and her husband of 30 years. As a participant on various boards in the past, Rice has experience in organizational leadership and is eager to put that experience to use for the Board of Newbury Local Schools. She stated, “I look forward to working together with the other Board members, the community, and the administration to do our very best in helping our students transition successfully to West Geauga Schools.”
Together, Lair and Rice officially join Maggie Zock, Terry Sedivy and Kimya Matthews to comprise the Newbury Board of Education. For information, visit www.newburyschools.org. Congratulations to the incoming Board Members!
