Board Of Education

Dr. Mark Myers
Title: Board Member

In 1997, Dr. Mark Myers began his service to the Pikeville Independent Board of Education to become more aware of school business and to help increase student learning capabilities. Since that time, he has proudly observed the district's steady academic progress and the physical and mental development of students. He has particularly enjoyed sharing in the success stories of students and faculty. Dr. Myers is challenged in his work on the Board to evaluate details and think before making decisions, always striving to work in the best interests of students and staff.

Dr. Myers has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with the school district. He was a "Top Ten Graduate" in the Pikeville High School Class of 1974 and was named "Mr. Pike High." He was also the all-time leading scorer in PHS basketball and a member of the All State Team. Dr. Myers states, "I am very proud of my years at Pikeville High School and two of my three children are also graduates of PHS."

Self-employed as a Pikeville optometrist, Dr. Myers is a graduate of Pikeville College and Southern College of Optometry. He is a member of First United Methodist Church of Pikeville.
