Honour for long-serving governor
One of our long-serving governors has been honoured for her dedication to Derbyshire schools.
For the past 40 years Joyce Marshall has been a governor at Longmoor Primary School in Long Eaton − serving for 30 years as chair.
The magistrate and former Erewash borough councillor has also been a governor at five other schools in the town - Long Eaton, Wilsthorpe, Parklands infant and nursery, Highfields primary and Harrington junior schools.
Now our Cabinet Member for Education Councillor Mike Longden has presented her with a certificate during a special assembly held at Longmoor.
Councillor Longden said: "Joyce is a true community champion and I'm delighted to be able to honour her years of dedication and commitment to our schools.
"Being a governor is entirely voluntary and she has willingly devoted her time to making sure young people get the education they deserve.
"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Joyce and all our other governors for their hard work."
