By Erik Buchinger
The Clintonville School Board held its reorganizational meeting Monday, April 24 at the Clintonville Middle School.
Ben Huber was elected as the board president, a position he held prior to Jim Dins. Huber served as the vice president over the past year.
Dins, who had been the board president, was elected to be the clerk, replacing Tom Neely, who was not re-elected to the board.
Dins made a motion to elect Huber as president, and Clyde Tellock nominated Dins, who said he would decline “to give the board better unity.”
The board voted on whether Mark Zachow and Lori Poppe would be the vice president, and Poppe won the vote.
Clyde Tellock retained his position as board treasurer.
Poppe was designated as the board’s delegate to attend the CESA 8 Annual Convention on June 7 in Gillett. She was also designated as a representative for the CESA 8 Board of Control.
