Longtime Boone County Board of Education member and former Kentucky School Boards Association (KSBA)  President Charles “Ed” Massey is the new secretary-treasurer of the National School Boards Association (NSBA). Massey was chosen by members of the NSBA Delegate Assembly in voting recently on the eve of the 2010 NSBA national conference in Chicago.

Massey’s nomination had been endorsed by the KSBA Board of Directors and the nine-state NSBA Central Region delegates. Earlier in the year, the NSBA nominating committee considered Massey and several other candidates before recommending his selection to the Delegate Assembly.

Massey will serve the coming year in the capacity of secretary-treasurer, become president-elect in 2011 and assume the top elected post for the association at its 2012 national conference in Boston.

Massey is in his fourth term on the Boone County board, was first elected to the KSBA board in 1998 and will complete his two-year term as immediate past president at next year’s KSBA annual conference. In April 2008, he was elected as the Central Region director to the NSBA board by his colleagues in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin.

He is a former participant in the prestigious Harvard Executive Educators Leadership Program and a member of the Leadership Kentucky Class of 2004. He has served on the Kentucky Council for Community Education and the Baptist Joint Committee on Public Affairs.
