James Rooney

January 2022 is "National School Board Appreciation Month" and the Guy-Perkins School District recognizes Board President, James Rooney (Zone 4), for his 10 years of service to its Board of Directors.

Why do you serve on the Guy-Perkins School Board? To give back to the school and community.

Who was your favorite teacher when you were in school? Why? What grade were you in? 10-12th grade - Jim Gilliam (Agri-teacher).  He cared about his students and was always willing to help us anyway he could.

What makes you T-bird proud of the Guy-Perkins School District?  The way the administration and faculty/staff truly care about our students helping them to get the best education possible.

James and his wife Amelia have two daughters, Grace and Alyson.  James can often be seen volunteering around the school district pouring concrete, building baseball stands, or working the softball field. Thank you, James Rooney, for faithfully serving the students and staff of the Guy-Perkins School District!
