The Illinois Association of School Boards recently welcomed June Maguire to its Board of Directors, representing the Lake Division.
Born and raised in Waukegan, Maguire serves on the Waukegan CUSD 60 Board of Education. She was first appointed to the school board in 1981, after serving on a district advisory council.
She has been re-elected multiple times and served as both president and vice president. Additionally, she has worked in Lake Division leadership since 1990, including service as division chair for the past four years.
Currently retired, Maguire worked for attorneys for 52 years as a legal assistant, and has a particular interest in school law and finance. She says she “looks forward to meeting school board members throughout the state and working with them on issues that affect our students.”
Maguire replaces long-time director Joanne Osmond, who was elected by Association delegates in November as IASB vice president.
The Board of Directors is represented by 26 directors, one for each of the 21 geographic divisions, as well as representatives from the Chicago SD 299 and IASB Service Associates, and three officers; president, vice president, and past president. The board meets quarterly and is responsible for the governing policies of the Association.
