Somerset County Board of Education Chair Resigns

Posted:
WESTOVER, Md. - Board Chairman William “Bill” Miles will relinquish the gavel as Chairman and member of the Somerset County Board of Education. He chose not to seek reelection to the Board and his membership vacancy will be filled by Board member-elect Penelope “Penny” Nicholson.

As a native of Oakville in Somerset County, he follows and precedes a long line of leaders to come from his beloved community which is known for its emphasis on education, leadership, family, church and athletics.

Upon becoming a Board of Education member, he was no newcomer to the profession of education, having served 38 years as an educator and an administrator in the public schools. Chairman Miles has served on the Somerset County Board of Education for a total of 9 years as a member and chairman. In addition to the demands of a Board member, during his “retirement”, he has served as pastor of Three Point United Methodist Church for 14 years, having been its only pastor. He is well respected and loved by his family, congregation and school community.

At the December 16, BOE meeting, his colleagues thanked him for his service and praised him for his noteworthy contributions. They gave him a prolonged standing ovation expressing respect and gratitude. Superintendent Dr. John Gaddis said he would always remember Dr. Miles for his professionalism and the call he received from him offering him his position of Superintendent of Somerset County Public Schools. Board Attorney Fulton Jeffers, ESQ. stated that Chairman Miles was consistently a gentleman in all of his dealings and that was the highest compliment he could pay him.
