Longtime Poland Board of Education member Elinor Zedaker was recognized for 25 years of service to the Poland Local School District Jan. 9 in honor of School Board Recognition Month in January.

Ohio School Board Association Northeast Regional Manager Reno Contipelli attended the school board's reorganizational meeting to deliver the plaque and congratulate Zedaker, who also serves on the Poland school board as vice president.

"There are approximately 3,400 school board members across the state of Ohio, but only a small group can say they've served 25 years or more in one district," Contipelli said. "It's quite an accomplishment."

Zedaker was first elected to the board in November 1991 and said she was the only woman running against a field of six men.

She is a graduate of Boardman High School but has been a Poland resident more than 50 years. Her late husband, their two sons, and now their grandsons are Poland Bulldogs, and Zedaker calls herself "a bulldog, through and through."

"It's an honor to serve this school district," Zedaker, who's now serving her seventh term, said.
