Ruth-Marie Spellman has been a part of the Brewer School Committee for nearly three decades and was honored Tuesday at the United Technology Center. “Ruth was presented a clock by the school board in appreciation of her 29 years of uninterrupted service to the school committee and the children of Brewer,” Superintendent Daniel Lee said Wednesday. The Brewer school board held a workshop meeting to attend the gathering. Spellman joined the board in November 1977 and this year decided to run as a Democratic candidate for the state Senate, running against state Sen. Richard Rosen, R-Bucksport. Spellman is a staunch supporter of UTC and has sat on the school’s board of directors for several years, Lee said.
