January is school board appreciation month. Please join me in recognizing our Athena-Weston School Board Directors for their dedication to the children of Athena- Weston School District. I would like to highlight the tremendous effort in securing an 8 million dollar bond with a focus on safety and security. We have hired our architect and construction manager, we are in the process of establishing construction timelines and we have three new school buses on the way. It is due to the dedication and commitment of our school board that this safety and security work is being realized for Athena-Weston Students.
Thank you Scott Rodgers, Marty Graham, Duane Smalley, Preston Winn, Clell Hasenbank, Bob Irvine and Jennifer Spurgeon.
