Elroy Buckner Treasurer (231) 865-4100Send an Email Read More
I was first elected to the Board of Education in 1988. My goal at that time was to give back to the community through my service as a board member. After a short period of time, I realized I could contribute to the fiscally soundness of Fruitport finances. Fruitport currently has the lowest tax base in the county. My educational background in accounting and business finances has helped provide some insight when tough financial decisions are at hand.

I ran for the Fruitport School Board because I wanted to make sure our kids were thought of first in all decisions that needed to be made now and in the future. I have found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. My most favorite part is seeing the work of our students whether it is on the field, on the stage, in an arena, or presenting before the school board. I take great pride in Fruitport and take every opportunity to promote our school system to others.

Education is exceptionally important as most jobs in today’s society require some sort of secondary education or technical training. Building that foundation is as important as it has ever been. Even though I do not work with students, it is my number one priority to make sure the students at Fruitport Community Schools get the best education possible. It is also my charge to ensure Fruitport Community Schools is a fiscally responsible district.

I am passionate about the education system, so much so, that when I began college I had intended to go into teaching. I soon found that business/finance was a better fit for me and promptly changed majors. I feel as though I have found the best of both worlds at Fruitport, as I am using the skills that I have in a supporting role in the public school system.
