School board appoints Bob Beer to library board

Bob Beer thought his stint on the Bluffton Public Library board ended recently when his first seven-year term expired.

However, with the resignation of library board member Sherry Haehl on Oct. 26, Beer is back on the board.

The Bluffton school board, who appoints library board members, named Beer to fulfill Haehl's unexpired term, which expires Dec. 31. He was also appointed to a new seven-year library board term from January 2010 through Dec. 31, 2016.

The action took place at the Nov. 16 school board meeting.

The November meeting, with its otherwise light agenda, lasted about 45 minutes. In other board action the board acceptd a $5,000 donation for a tutoring program called Students for Other Students (SOS).

Two coordinators for the program were issued SOS contracts for three hours per week at $18.17 per hour. The coordinators are Tami Hardy and Kathleen Moser. The contract period is from Nov. 30 to April 22, 2010.

Substitute teacher contracts at $72 per day taught were issued to:

Kurt Emans

Angela Dove

Hollie Fischer

Balogun Feyintolu

Robin Pillow

George Lindeman

Angela Rasor.

Brian Hill, an Ohio Northern University student, was approved as a student teacher with David Sycks. The experience will take place from March 8 to May 21, 2010.

The board set its 2010 reorganization meeting for 7:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 11.
