It was exciting to see such interest paid to the two open seats on our Board of Education. Four candidates ran for the board, and the two who received the highest number of votes were elected. Those two individuals are Steven Hoffman and Mary Beth Whited. I look forward to working with both when they begin serving their terms in July.
I again thank our outgoing board members Mark Scully and Michael Hartkern for their service to the community and our students. I wish the best to both of them!
