• CASB Honors Bob Landgraf


    Former Board of Education member Bob Landgraf was honored by his peer’s last week at the regional meeting of the Colorado Association of School Boards. He was given the prestigious McGuffey award during the meeting at the Marriott West Hotel in Golden.

    The award honors board members who have brought, “committed and passionate service to their board work and who have worked tirelessly as an advocate for the District and its students.”

    The award is named after William Holmes McGuffey, who created the textbook series in the early 1800’s. It’s estimated at least 120 million copies of the primers were sold over 120 years.

    Landgraf graduated from Westminster High School in 1962 and went on to build Landgraf Plumbing, a very successful local business. He was elected to the Board of Education in 1977 and served two four year terms. In 2011, now retired from his business, he decided to return to the Board of Education and was elected by voters of District 50.

    Landgraf moved to a new home outside of the District boundaries last spring, requiring him to resign his seat. He was replaced by Ken Ciancio.
