  • Support Our Legacy Project

    Posted by MoASBO on 1/4/2024
    Dear Colleagues, 
    How can we help? 
    There is no one right answer or no wrong answer to that question, but there are myriad ways each of us can make a difference. Decisions and actions impact both the receiver and the giver.
    As I thought about what this year's legacy project  should be, I kept returning to these thoughts and thinking about how people in our community struggle with extremely difficult situations. Giving is not just about making a donation and moving on; it is also about making a difference and potentially changing the lives of others for the better through our actions! 
    You may be surprised to know the Salvation Army has Family Shelters throughout Missouri that provide support in many ways. 
    Shelley and I have supported localized area women's shelters in STL, so this is a program that I feel is very important. It is a great way to help those taking courageous steps toward change. Join me in April, and let's see how many children and families we can lift up by bringing a donation for the Family Shelter Program to the Annual Spring Conference. 
    More information about the Family Shelter Program visit the MoASBO website - Spring Conference webpage - 2024 Legacy Event section. Spread love and kindness and help others. Together, we will make the greatest impact!

    Dear MoASBO Colleagues,


    It's hard to believe another school year is off and running, and the December break is almost here. As you are working diligently in your district, MoASBO continues to work to bring you the tools you need to reach your career goals. I hope you have taken advantage of the high-quality professional development offered during the Fall, such as webinars, conferences, and regional area meetings.


    For me personally, I've experienced change and growth to help me reach my goals as well:

    • Accepting a CFO position at Hancock Place School District.

    • Attending area region meetings across the state. Plus, I was able to attend an ASBO and MOASBO/MASA/MSBA conference this Fall.


    In this hectic pace of the school business office, I hope you can plan time to dedicate to your well-being and keep sight of or refresh your goals for 2024.


    My continued goal for MoASBO is to have quality professional development available to you so you can better serve students.


    Happy Holidays!

    Board President
    Paul Northington
