The first time I covered a school board meeting as a freelance reporter, I had no idea what I was in for.

I joked to myself while I waited an hour in closed session that it should have been called by its homophone: a “bored meeting.” The agenda was two pages long and written in terms I had yet to understand. It was intimidating at first, but I quickly learned the language and saw how local villages thrive on community involvement through many facets, one of which was meetings like that.
