Highland County Press |

David E. Yockey, who serves on the Milford Exempted Village Schools board and the Great Oaks Career Campuses board, was recognized as a 2020 All-Ohio School Board member on Nov. 8 during the OSBA Capital Conference and Trade Show. OSBA Chief Executive Officer Rick Lewis introduced All-Ohio School Board members during the Opening General Session of the 65th annual conference, held virtually this year, Nov. 7-10. 

Yockey, who represents OSBA’s Southwest Region, is in his 19th year on the Milford and Great Oaks Career Campuses boards. He’s most proud of “seeing our school system getting better each year and providing more and more opportunities for our students and finding the funding to improve our facilities for student learning. During my tenure on the (Milford) board, we have built six new elementary schools, remodeled the high school, built a new board of education building and improved our campus and athletic facilities.” 

The retired educator also serves on OSBA’s Board of Trustees and is a member of the association’s Southwest Region Executive Committee.
