Rhoda and Dick Meyer
Stewards of Finneytown
This dynamic duo has been involved in Finneytown Schools since the 1970’s. As community members and parents of two Finneytown students, their volunteer efforts spanned a variety of activities in the schools and the greater Finneytown community. Rhoda was the first parent representative to the Curriculum Council, and spent 28 years as a classroom volunteer tutoring reading, math, and language arts, primarily working with students with learning disabilities. She also helped with special projects including auditory testing, LD screening, and high school registration. Dick has served as tax levy committee member, as a Career Opportunities speaker, as chairman of the first Springfest, and as an actor in the Finneytown Area Summer Theatre.
Together they were active in Music Parents, are charter life members of the Finneytown Education Foundation, and received the fist dual Finneytown Education Association Friend of Education Award in 1991. Rhoda and Dick are founding members of the Finneytown Civic Association, for which Dick served three terms as president and Rhoda has edited the newsletter. Rhoda and Dick continue as friends of Finneytown and are great community role models.
