Joy Weaver Retires After Decades of Service

Mrs. Joy Weaver retired from the Governing Board of Montgomery County Educational Service Center on March 31, 2023. She spent 48 years in service to Montgomery County schools, earning her the rank of 6th longest-serving board member in Ohio. Her expertise, wisdom and sweet disposition were a blessing to MCESC and to every person she encountered.

“Mrs. Joy Weaver was a ‘joy’ to work with and will be deeply missed. Her care and concern for students and staff across Montgomery County were unmatched. Mrs. Weaver's legacy and boardsmanship have set forth a ripple effect to be felt by generations to come” Shannon Cox, MCESC Superintendent, said.

Mrs. Weaver began her career with MCESC in 1981. Prior to that time, she spent six years on Jefferson Township Local School Board. She represented schools at both Ohio and National school board meetings and has received numerous awards, including the prestigious honor of All-Ohio School Board Member from the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA).

Her retirement was celebrated Thursday at the MCESC Retirement Celebration, where she was applauded for her years as a public servant to MCESC, to Montgomery County schools and to the greater educational community. Mr. Tomas Steck, a lifetime Ohioan and experienced member of a variety of committees, has been appointed to the board in her place.

“We welcome Mr. Steck to MCESC. We look forward to his leadership and his dedication to the students in the county. He will be a value-add to our board and the entire MCESC family” Cox commented.
