COLUMBUS — A Van Wert County school board member recently received the Ohio School Boards Association’s most prestigious award.
Eric K. Germann, who has served nine years on the Lincolnview school board, was recognized Sunday as a 2018 All-Ohio School Board member at the OSBA Capital Conference and Trade Show in Columbus.
Each year, OSBA names one board of education member from each of its five regions — Central, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest — to the All-Ohio School Board. The award recognizes outstanding service to public education and represents the dedication shown by thousands of board members across the state.
Elected three times to the Lincolnview Local board, Germann, who represents OSBA’s Northwest Region, was OSBA’s president in 2016. The Van Wert resident and senior solutions architect for Amazon Web Services also has served four times as his board’s president and spent four years on the Vantage Career Center board.
