The June 20 School Board meeting included recognition for the Board itself. For the fourth consecutive year, the Ray-Pec School Board has received two prestigious state-level awards from the Missouri School Boards' Association.

The second picture, taken at the 2018 Missouri School Boards' Association Leadership Summit on June 2, shows Board members with the 2018 Outstanding Board of Education Award.
The Governance Award is based on a school boards' commitment to professional development, regional and statewide leadership, and legislative advocacy for public schools.
The Outstanding Boards of Education awards were aligned to six specific categories of the Missouri Public Education Vision Project. Ray-Pec received the award in the category of Governance, Leadership, and Accountability.
