City Council now accepting applications for appointment to GCSC school board

Sunday, April 13, 2014

The Greencastle City Council will make one of its two appointments to the Greencastle Community Schools Board of Trustees at the June meeting of the Council.

The four-year term in question, the seat currently filled by Bill Tobin, will commence on July 1, 2014 and continue until June 30, 2018.

Applications are available at City Hall, 1 N. Locust St., and also on the website. Completed applications will be accepted at City Hall until 5 p.m. Friday, May 9.

Candidate interviews with the City Council will be scheduled at a later date. Those interested must reside within the city limits to be considered.

If Tobin wishes to continue, he must make application the same as any other interested party.

Tobin was appointed by the school board itself in February 2012 to succeed City Council appointee Monica Fennell after she resigned.

The seat is one of two representing residents within the city limits of Greencastle on the appointed GCSC board. The Council's other appointee is Denise Sigworth, who was named to succeed Bruce Stinebrickner on the board in June 2012.

Other members of the appointed GCSC board include Dale Pierce, appointed by Madison Township Advisory Board, and Gary Haussin and Michael White, both appointed by the Greencastle Township Advisory Board.

  • When will Greencastle have ELECTED board members....not appointed....Seems foolish we are in the minority in the state that still votes their own into positions instead of actually allowing the public (which you serve) decide who is best to represent them.
