Bill Sturgill has been a Lorain City Schools Board of Education member for 13 years, this year serving as president. But the number of years a ‘Sturgill’ has proudly represented the International City is decades-long.
Bill has lived in Lorain for 64 years, graduating from Lorain High School in 1968 before earning an associate’s degree from Lorain County Community College in 1975. His family has several Admiral King High School graduates among its ranks, including his wife, Andrea (Class of 1968) who just retired after 37 years with the district; his son, Stephen (Class of 1990), who currently serves as the district’s Executive Director of Wraparound Services, and his daughter (Class of 1991.) Add to this, his six grandchildren who are Lorain Schools alumni, and his long history of volunteerism and coaching, and it is no surprise that Bill believes in all that Lorain City Schools has to offer.
“I became a school board member to better serve the teachers and children of this community,” he said. “I believe there is nothing that will serve you better in life than having a great education and that starts with good reading comprehension. I believe that any child can get a well-rounded education in Lorain, I believe our diversity is good, and growing up with people with different ethnic and racial backgrounds will serve your best interests in your future. We are all more alike than unalike.”
