Globe Unified School District School Board member Frankie DalMolin was awarded the All-Arizona Board Member Award on Dec. 14, 2018. This award is the highest individual board member honor given by the Arizona School Board Association.
The All-Arizona Board Member award is bestowed upon board members who exemplify best practices in boardsmanship, understanding their roles and following through on their responsibilities.
DalMolin takes the roles and responsibilities of serving on the GUSD governing board very seriously. He is a person of integrity, he places the good of all students as highest priority and he supports and encourages all staff members to follow his leadership example to live up to the district vision of “Capturing Hearts, Empowering Minds.”
DalMolin stated that “it is an honor and a privilege to serve GUSD and to be entrusted to protect our children’s education.”
“GUSD has some of the best students and staff in the state, hands down,” he added.
As a school board member for 10 years, DalMolin has demonstrated commitment to serving students in the Globe. He volunteers countless hours to ensure that GUSD is meeting the needs of the community and that he is honoring the position entrusted to him by the voting constituency.
He can regularly be seen at school events, visiting buildings and taking time to meet and talk with staff and voters. DalMolin said his favorite thing about serving on the school board is “getting to know students, attending school events and handing out diplomas.”
The role of a school board member is voluntary. When not volunteering, DalMolin works fulltime for Freeport-McMoRan, Miami Operations as part of the Pinal Creek Group.
DalMolin volunteers his time and is active in leadership roles in other youth organizations such as the Southern Arizona International Livestock Association (SAILA), Arizona National Livestock Association and 4-H. He lives in Globe with his wife, Melva and daughter, Hadley.
