Whitehead to head MSBA next year

Jefferson City native Doug Whitehead was selected as president-elect of the Missouri School Board Association at its 2013 Leadership Summit held last weekend at Lake of the Ozarks.

Whitehead has served on the Jefferson City Board of Education for 12 years. He was re-elected to serve on the school board again last April.

As president-elect of the MSBA, Whitehead is automatically slated to serve as president of the organization starting in June 2014. He will serve a one-year term.

Whitehead graduated from Jefferson City High School in 1983 and earned a degree from Kansas State University’s Professional School of Architecture in 1988. Today he works as director of operations for the National Biodiesel Board.

Whitehead will follow Phil Hutchinson, a school board member from the Grain Valley R-V School District, who was elected MSBA president last weekend. In his remarks at the summit, Hutchinson urged school board members to continue their own education as local education leaders.

“As board members, we must continually improve out abilities,” Hutchinson said.

The MSBA is a private, non-profit organization that exists to help school boards succeed.
