Words from the Prez:

Welcome back! I hope your year is off to a smooth start. Margaret Mead once said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Recent passage of a bond issue illustrates this beautifully. The long range facilities committee put together a bond proposal that will change secondary education in Bartlesville for years to come.

Groups like the BEA and OEA exist because we see the need for change in education and we recognize that change can only occur when we work together.

Thank you for being part of this group of thoughtful committed citizens. I look forward to working with you this year to change our world!

Cheryl Fentress

BEA President
