COLUMBUS — Ron Rudduck, current District 10 State Board of Education representative, has filed his candidacy to retain his position as a member of the State Board.
Rudduck has been serving on the State Board of Education since last August, having been appointed by Governor John Kasich to fill the vacancy left by the death of Clermont County resident Jeff Hardin.
Rudduck was a teacher and administrator for 31 years. Most recently, Rudduck served as superintendent of the Clinton-Massie Local School District from 1999 to 2009. Prior he was a teacher with the East Clinton Local School system and a principal for 10 years with Clinton-Massie.
“I feel I bring a valuable perspective to the State Board of Education,” Rudduck said. “My experiences as an educational leader are instrumental in keeping students and teachers at the forefront with the decisions being considered by the other members of the Board.”
As a member of the State Board of Education, Rudduck has assumed a leadership role having been appointed as chairman of the Operating Standards Committee, which is charged with reviewing and revising the operating procedures for Ohio’s K-12 schools. He has also been asked to testify on several key education issues being considered by Ohio legislators.
“Ron is a strong voice for our region on the Ohio School Board,” said State Representative Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville). “His experience in the classroom and as an administrator enable his advocacy for the issues that are most important to our region. I’m certain his insight will help shape a brighter future for generations of Ohioans.”
District 10 is a sprawling Southern Ohio region comprised of Adams, Brown, Clark, Clermont, Clinton, Fayette, Gallia, Greene, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence, Madison, Pike, Ross, and Scioto plus western portions of Pickaway and Vinton counties.
