LINCOLN – The Rhode Island Association of School Committees elected Mary Anne Roll, a Lincoln resident and member of the Lincoln School Committee, as president at its recent 2018 Annual Meeting at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick.
Roll has served on the Lincoln School Committee since 2004 and in various capacities on the RIASC board since 2014. A former teacher, she has also been president of the Rhode Island PTA and director of the Cumberland School Volunteers, a position she held for 17 years, retiring in June 2017.
RIASC said, in a news release, that Roll has a commitment to ongoing professional development, evidenced by her graduation from RIASC’s Leadership Academy, through which she has completed more than 300 hours of school committee member professional development, receiving recognition from the Rhode Island Board of Education.
“I believe serving on a school committee is the best work you can do in your local community,” Roll said, as she assumed her presidency. “RIASC has provided me the opportunity to grow as a school committee member. As president of RIASC, I look forward to working with the executive board as well as other school committee members across the state, to support the mission of the Rhode Island Association of School Committees.”
