The Humboldt School Board held its annual re-organizational meeting Monday night (Sept. 16) and installed newly-elected members.
Suzanne Newton and Janell Smith, both of Dakota City, were newly-elected to the board on Sept. 10 while Kyle Kluender, Randy Hildreth and Brody Clark were re-elected. Newton was elected to an at-large seat while Smith was elected to director district one. Their terms are for four years. Kluender is in district two while Hildreth is in district three and Clark seat four. The trio are filling out terms after being appointed over the past two years.
The new members were administered the Oath of Office by board secretary Rhiannon Lange.
The board then held its own election and voted unanimously to have Hildreth take over the position of president of the board while Clark was voted vice-president.
Prior to the installation and elections, the retiring board held a brief meeting to approve old business. Trina Carda, who has served as president over the past year, is stepping down after five years of service. Rick Pedersen, a seven-year veteran of the board, also stepped down. They were honored prior to their departure with plaques and gifts.
