The Board of Education welcomed back a former director and bid farewell to another at a special meeting for general purposes held on January 2nd. It also set a new meeting start time, 7:00 PM, for all regular meetings beginning Monday, January 8th. Former director Tim Vought returned to the Board after being appointed to fill a two-year term caused by the resignation of director Gail Zambor Schuerch. Thanks are extended to Mr. Vought for his decision to "throw his hat back into the ring" and to Mrs. Mary Schramm and Mr. James Rosenberger, who along with Mr. Vought, made up the well-qualified pool of three candidates for the vacant seat. Additionally, Mrs. Schuerch is thanked for her dedicated public service, her advocacy for students, and her efforts in promoting health and wellness throughout the District. Although no longer a Board of Education member, Mrs. Schuerch will continue to serve the District as a member of the Southern Columbia Community Foundation. In other member-related news, Mr. Joseph Klebon was named the Board's Vice-President. At December's Reorganization Meeting, Mr. Mike Yeager was re-elected as President of Southern Columbia's Board of Education. Membership on the Board of Education and the Southern Columbia Community Foundation is strictly a volunteer effort, without pay. Thank you to the aforementioned, and to all other Board and Foundation members, for your time, efforts, and interest in enhancing education at Southern Columbia!
