MONTGOMERY – Muscle Shoals business owner, former Muscle Shoals City school board member and Alabama Association of School Boards President Pam Doyle has been elected to serve on the 2017-18 board of the National School Boards Association.
Doyle was installed as an NSBA Southern Region director during the organization’s annual conference, which was held in Denver, Colo., March 25-27. More than 6,000 school board members and education leaders from across the nation attended the event.
Doyle is well known for her involvement in various leadership roles in the Muscle Shoals community. She also is
the recipient of numerous civic and professional awards, including the Shoals Chamber of Commerce Women in Business Advocate of the Year and the Rotary Foundation Paul Harris Fellow award. She currently serves as a board member of the Alabama School of Mathematics and Science (Mobile, Ala.), to which she was appointed by Alabama’s governor in 2014.
Through her new leadership role with the NSBA, Doyle will have an opportunity to impact the education of children across the southern region.
“My vision for the children of this nation is for them to not simply join the global workforce, but to help expand it and to not just impact our nation, but to change the world,” Doyle said. “I will pursue with passion and dedication my vision to help provide every child with the every opportunity available to achieve academic excellence. I hope to bring that same passion and dedication to helping fulfill the
mission of NSBA.”
NSBA Executive Director and CEO Thomas J. Gentzel called upon education leaders to “be an even stronger voice” to ensure the future success of students.
“More than 50 million children across the country receive a world-class public education and each year we slowly but steadily raise student achievement,” Gentzel said. “We are educating more children to a higher standard because of the dedication and efforts of education leaders representing the interests of schoolchildren in our communities.”
