A member of the Oldham County Board of Education has been appointed to serve as a director-at-large of the Kentucky School Boards Association.

Larry Dodson, Crestwood, represents the southeastern part of Oldham County on the local board. He will serve a three-year term and was appointed by KSBA President Durward Narramore.

“I know (Dodson) will hit the ground running as we tackle the issues KSBA is facing due to his past experience on both the local level and KSBA board,” Narramore said.

Established in 1936, the nearly 900-member KSBA assists school districts and local boards of education in all 174 public school systems by providing training, consultation, advocacy and information about public education in Kentucky.

Dodson served on the KSBA board from 2007-10 as one of 12 regional chairpersons, representing local school boards in the 5th Region. Superintendent Will Wells said Dodson is known for his commitment to students, school board members and the KSBA.

Dodson is a safety manager for Louisville Gas and Electric Co.
