Glenwood Middle School Principal Honored

Bart Smith, principal of Glenwood Junior High School in Boardman, received the Distinguished School Service Award from the Ohio School Resource Officer Association at its annual banquet June 27 in Dublin. The award recognizes an administrator, teacher or staff member who supports a safe and positive learning environment and makes efforts to improve school safety. Smith was nominated for the award by Glenwood Middle School resource officer Phil Merlo, who calls Smith a “proactive administrator.” He makes it a point, Merlo wrote in nominating Smith, “to initiate and conduct home visits with me to check on students who are truant or experiencing different types of trauma and/or family issues outside of school that may be affecting their ability to function in the school setting.”
