Governor Jay Inslee has proclaimed January as School Board Recognition Month. The Riverview School District would like to take the opportunity to honor our five board members and two student representatives.
- President Carol Van Noy (21 years of service);
- Lori Oviatt (11 years);
- Vice-President Danny Edwards (9 years);
- Jodi Fletcher (5 years);
- Sabrina Parnell (1-plus years); and
- Senior class student representative Pascal Nagata (serving a second term)
- Junior class student representative Sophie Paradis (serving a first term).
In November, the Riverview School Board of Directors received the prestigious Board of the Year Award from the Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA). Riverview is one of just three boards to receive this honor. Superintendent Dr. Anthony L. Smith spoke proudly of the announcement.
“This award is about a school board that is passionate about our singular focus of providing each and every student with the best education possible. They are known as progressive educational leaders throughout the state of Washington and get involved at all levels of government to advocate for the support needed to ensure our students and staff excel.”
In issuing his Proclamation, Governor Inslee said, “I urge all people in our state to join me in this special observance.”

The Riverview School District would like to join with Governor Inslee and other districts in the State of Washington and congratulate our school board. Thank you for all you do, not only this month, but throughout the whole year!
