The Catawba County Board of Commissioners appointed 11 individuals to serve on the K-64 governing board, which was established to provide practical, executive leadership to the K-64 education initiative. The full board will be comprised of 12 members representing K-64’s founding partners and the local business sector.
The K-64 board is responsible for establishing a long-term vision for K-64, which includes securing continuous financial support, transparency and accountability for the effective use of public funds; implementation of concrete plans with both tangible and timely goals and outcomes; direction to executive staff hired in conjunction with, and overseen by, the K-64 board; and communication and engagement resulting in continued buy-in by partner organizations and the community at large.
“The success of K-64 depends on direct engagement with our local business community,” said Randy Isenhower, chair, Catawba County Board of Commissioners. “These charter members will help shape K-64 into a best-in-class program that enhances our education system and delivers real-world results for both students and local employers. They will begin this work with their first board meeting at the end of May.”
