A new board member for the Athena-Weston School District, Clell Hasenbank, was sworn in during the regular meeting Monday, April 11. Mr. Hasenbank was appointed to fill a seat left vacant by Trenda Nichols for Zone 6 on Weston Mountain.
“I was born and raised in the Athena-Weston area and attended school here. I look at volunteering for the school board as a way to give back to my community. After completing my education and training, my wife and I moved back to the area to work and raise our family. One of the reasons we moved back was because we want our children to attend school in the Athena-Weston School District and experience all that it has to offer. I am looking forward to this opportunity, and hope that I can contribute to bettering our rural community,” reports Mr. Hasenbank.
