The Viborg-Hurley School District will join districts across the state to thank school board members for their leadership and service to our local school district and community during South Dakota School Board Recognition Week from February 15-19.
“This is a great opportunity to recognize our school board for their dedication to our children and our communities,” Superintendent Mellem said.
The men and women serving Viborg-Hurley and their years of service are:

This group is responsible for setting the vision of and goals for the district and strives to provide a quality education for our students. The school board also hires quality educators, adopts policies and evaluates progress while always keeping the best interests of our students in mind.
