Golden Gavel Award from the Montana School Board Association at its meeting in October 2008. Achieving the Golden Gavel Award requires a major commitment of time for the Lockwood Trustees. Not only do they attend to all of the business in the district, but they must attend classes to receive this award. Every Trustee on the Board must receive a minimum number of credits for this honor.
We are very proud of their dedication to our educational community. Learn more about the awards won by our outstanding board here>>.
