Our Board

Pat Cushman

Board Position #1

I have been a member of the Mill-A community for most of my life; I attended Mill A School for my seventh and eighth grade years and went on to graduate from Stevenson High school. Since then I have worked for and retired from the U.S Fish and Wildlife after thirty-two years of service. Approximately fifteen years ago I made up my mind to serve my community. Since that time, I have spent seven years serving on the Mill A Volunteers fire department as an active member. I also joined our local church five years ago and am a current member. My grandfather served on the Mill A School board years ago and I feel that it is time that I follow that demonstration of responsibility and serve our community myself. Thanks for the opportunity!

Gary Green

Board Position #2


Mr. Gary Green is a long-time resident of Mill A, and attended Mill A School as a child, graduating in 1985.

Ricky Walker

Board Position #5


My name is Ricky Walker, and serving Mill A School as a Board Director is an awesome opportunity as well as an adventure.


We moved to Mill A in May of 2003. We quickly discovered how close and caring this community is. People here speak freely, not inhibited about helping others, and genuinely care, not just for their families but neighbors as well. 


I love to live in a place where we, as citizens may step in and be apart of the governing process, and not be disconnected from our community. I support our represented form of governance to the fullest. 

The school in my opinion is the best "Private, Public" school there is. All are aware of what is going on at the school. All are welcome to attend the Board meetings. Due to its size everybody knows everybody! That is the best security system going.


Thanks for allowing me and my family to lend a hand.
