Board Member Dr. David Peercy Becomes “Master” from New Mexico School Boards Association
Albuquerque Public Schools Board Member Dr. David Peercy was recently recognized by the New Mexico School Boards Association as a Master Board Member. Peercy becomes one of only a few dozen board members who have been honored with the recognition. Peercy, who has served on the board since 2009, said before the ceremony, “Doing this is just the type of person I am,” after being asked about the recognition.
The New Mexico School Boards Association developed the Master Board Member Program to establish a group of school board members who could mentor and teach other board members from across the state. Peercy went through more than 36 hours of professional development training, and spent several days working with the New Mexico Legislative Education Study Committee on educational issues.
Peercy currently serves as the chair of the APS Board’s Policy Committee and is very active throughout the district including District 7, which he represents. He also presented this year at the Council of the Greater City Schools Conference and the New Mexico School Boards Association Conference.
