Cloverdale School Board swears in new members
CLOVERDALE -- Monday evening saw some major changes in lineup for Cloverdale Community School Board.
The meeting began with new board members Brian Asbury and Duane Huge being sworn in to office. Asbury and Huge have come into office after the terms of Tony Hacker and James Sharp ended last month. The two had little time to settle in before further action was need in the nominations and elections of officers for the school board.
The first election of the evening found Donna Fidler installed as president of the board, at which point she took over the remainder of the elections and meeting from former president Pamelia Hepfer. Linda Mann was then nominated and elected as vice president and Hepfer became the board's new secretary.
The board then voted to keep the board meeting dates and times as the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. and established board compensation at $2,000. Debbie Leonard and Terri Bailey were appointed as the corporation treasurer and deputy treasure, respectively, and Karen Dutcher as corporation attorney.
With no comments from the visitors in attendance, the board moved on to a 2011 bus inspection update from Joel Kennelly. Cloverdale Community School Corporation received an impressive 100 percent pass on all buses.
Superintendent Dr. Carrie Milner gave an update on the corporation's upcoming purchase of outdoor lighting for the baseball and football fields. The board approved the lease purchase proposal of lights from Musco Lighting with financing through First National Bank.
The board approved a movement to advertise the corporation's annual financial report.
A number of changes to the faculty rosters for the corporation ended the new business of the evening. Three teachers were hired -- Laura Beth Cross, High School Family and Consumer Science; John Butler, High School Social Studies/Government; and Adam Hoersten, High School Chemistry.
