HAMILTON - To avoid potential criticism, members of the Marion County Board of Education will hold prayer prior to official meetings
Marion County Board of Education Chairwoman Belinda McRae announced the change prior to the board’s meeting on Tuesday, July 23, at the Marion County Schools Central Office.
The board has traditionally held prayer in the board’s meeting room to officially open monthly meetings.
Instead, members of the board met inside the office of Marion County Superintendent of Education Ann West and joined hands to pray. They were joined by West, a Journal Record reporter and House District 17 Rep. Tracy Estes, R-Winfield, who led the group in its invocation.
