Scott Clark returns to the varsity wrestling job and he will be assisted again by Jesse Bach.
Robyn Taylor was hired to serve as the competitive cheer coach again and Jessica Taylor will lead the middle school team. Daniel Yatzek was hired to coach the eighth grade girls basketball team.
Middle school teacher Beth Wright spoke to the board about her trip to Japan last spring through the Lenawee ISD exchange program. She served as a chaperone to several county students.
She thanked board members for supporting her participation, which required her to miss several days from the classroom. She said the knowledge she acquired from the trip will be passed on to her students over the next several years.
