Two Arlington School Board Directors step down after a combined 36 years of service to students
DirectorsDuring the Nov. 25 Arlington Public Schools Board of Directors meeting, directors Kay Duskin and Dr. Jeff Huleatt were recognized for their many years of service to the students. Duskin and Huleatt served a combined 36 years on the board and decided not to run again for their seats on the board.

Duskin joined the board in 1999. During her time on the board, she served as President, Vice President and Legislative Representative. She regularly volunteers at Arlington High School and at Presidents Elementary. She also hand signed over 7,000 high school diplomas over that 20-year time period.

Dr. Huleatt was elected to the board in 2003. He served on various district committees including the Byrnes Performing Arts Center (BPAC) Advisory Committee, the BPAC Executive Committee, the Career and Technical Education (CTE) General Advisory Board, the Health Science Programs Advisory Board, and the Community Truancy Board.

“Words cannot fully express the positive impact that Kay and Jeff have had on our students and staff,” said Arlington Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Chrys Sweeting. “They helped guide the district during a challenging recession when district budgets were severely impacted. As part of their leadership, the district is now stronger both academically and financially. Their wealth of experience and guidance will be greatly missed, and I wish them the very best.”
