ALBION The nine-member Albion Board of Education has unanimously supported Margy Brown to continue as president of the board.

Brown has served in the role since March 2011. She has pushed for excellence in academics and extracurricular activities while insisting on a program that is affordable to district taxpayers. Albion only once in the past nine years has raised school taxes.

“Margy is doing a great job,” said Dean Dibley, who was re-elected the board’s vice president. “She is very connected to the community, and she is very passionate about serving the school district.”

Brown is a certified registered nurse anesthetist. She co-owns and serves as managing partner of Anesthesia Care Associates, which provides anesthesia services for cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries.

She and her husband Eric have two sons in the district: Harrison and Jeffrey.

The nine-member group has one new member. Steven LaLonde was elected in May.
