February Updates

Hello Everyone,

January seemed to take forever, and February has moved by so quickly!

I know you have received some updates from Gary Needham and others, but I wanted to share/reiterate some information with you.

ESU 9 Quiz Bowl

This event never ceases to amaze me or anyone else who attends. I learn something new and incredible about the event each year. Thank you to all of you who work to make this possible (there is a lot of you)!

Continuous Improvement Process

The new committees are meeting and moving forward. This is exciting, and thank you all for your work.

Board Updates

The current ESU 9 facility is going to be for sale. During the February 19th board meeting, the board voted to hire Ruhter Auction and Realty, Inc. to list the property.

Also, the board voted to hire WDesign to oversee the construction of an addition onto the facility located at 5807 Osborne Drive West. This is a departure from the “renovation” idea that was originally proposed. WDesign will also oversee the paving of additional parking spaces at the new facility. Moving day keeps getting closer.

Kim Johnson has worked for ESU 9 for 28 years, and she has announced her retirement. Congratulations Kim!!

Also, congratulations to Sarah Modlin, Lori Hodson and Trish Bonifas who were hired by Adams Central. We wish you all the best.
