Rodney Ward, the current chairman of the Magoffin County School Board, has served on the board for four years. He and his wife Traci are residents of the Lick Creek area. Ward has two daughters, Scarlett, age 4 years old, and Raegan, 14 years old.
Ward graduated for Morehead State University in 1998 with a degree in education, and has worked for the United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons, for 16 years.
As for the reason he decided to get into education, Ward said, “I think education is one of the most important assets an individual can obtain in life, and as a board member I just wanted to make sure the funds were spent appropriately and give the kids the best opportunities.”
