Joyce Best, 1989-1990

Joyce Best’s educational experience began with the Title I Elementary and Secondary Education Act funding a position in the Shelby County Public Schools, for which she was chosen.  She traded her childhood expectation of being an accounting teacher for a position as bookkeeper and secretary in the administration office.  After completing both B.S. and master’s degrees in business administration and education, she was promoted to finance officer.  She has fond memories of the many friends made during her active KASBO and SASBO years from attending conferences; serving in different officer capacities; and serving as KASBO representative to SASBO, KASA, and KSBA.  She would not trade her past experiences for any other vocation, and she applauds those who are continuing to serve our precious children—the business of schools!
