School Board retains same slate of officers


The Laramie County School District 2 Board of Trustees met for a short, end-of-the-calendar-year meeting, and re-elected the 2014-2015 slate of officers to board leadership for 2015-2016.

Taft Love will remain Chairman and member-at-large; Jeff Kirkbride Vice-Chairman and member-at-large; Julianne Randall, Treasurer and representing Pine Bluffs; and Todd Fornstrom, Clerk, and also representing Pine Bluffs.

The board also approved the re-appointment of Tom Morgans, representing Burns, and Jack Bomhoff, representing Carpenter, to the LCSD2 Recreation Board for two year terms. Todd Fornstrom, Esther Davison and Jeff Kirkbride will continue on the board until their terms expire at the end of December 2016.

There being no old or new business to discuss, the board moved onto the matter of employment.

Resignations acknowledged and accepted were from bus drivers Todd Lerwick and Sarah Greenwade, as well as longtime football coach Matt Thurin. Esther Davison complimented Thurin on his years of service to the district, and said he would be missed.

Employment was approved of Jessie Scheurn, sub para, Angie Wiesen, Kevin Thomas and Damien Thompson as sub teachers, and Walter Schaefer, bus driver, and Steve Siegel, sub bus driver.

The hiring of Travis Werner and Laura Fornstrom as coaches for “C” boys and girls basketball at Pine Bluffs was also approved, with Todd Fornstrom abstaining from the vote.

Several of the board members, including Julianne Randall, Taft Love, Lee May, Esther Davison and Todd Fornstrom, are planning to attend either the National School Board Association Conference in Boston, in April, or the School Leadership Conference in Orlando, or both.

Superintendent Jon Abrams, in talking about the calendar for the 2016-2017 school year, said he wanted it known that he will never make the mistake of scheduling a full day of school on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

District Business Manager Misty Gallegos stated that Chartwells is bringing in a new food service director, and reassigning the previous one to another area. Her name is Lindsay Franklin, and she will begin working with the district immediately.

The next school board meeting is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 11.
