In its meeting last Tuesday (held electronically via a Zoom video conference call), the Lee County School Board recognized Judy Flournoy for her 26 years of service to Lee County schools. 

“She’s been a strong employee of the Lee County school system,” said Larry Boswell, president of the Lee County Board of Education, “We all have depended on her a great deal to help us.”  The board presented Flournoy a plaque in appreciation of her service ahead of her retirement.
