Koerber wins award
All board members were present at the Tyler County Board of Education meeting held on Monday, April 12.
Darlene Koerber was recently selected as the National Physical Education Teacher of the Year from the Mid West District. Koerber is the second teacher in the county selected for this honor in the past 125 years. The board members congratulated her on her award and the hard work she does for the Tyler County students.
Leon Ammons attended the meeting asking for funding for the FFA program. Ammons requested $3,500 for the land judging competition to be held on May 6.
“This is my seventh year at the land judging competition and this is the second year that I have asked for funding since I started it”, stated Ammons.
The decision was foregone until the board could review the budget.
Krista DeVaughn, assistant principal at Tyler County High School, gave the board members the financial report for winter sports programs. According to DeVaughan, they are $2,300 in the red. She said there is more going out than coming in and prices are going up everywhere.
She also noted that surrounding counties are seeing the same thing in their financial records. DeVaughan suggested that the board ask school personnel to pay when attending sporting events. No decision was made.
The next regular meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20 at Sistersville Elementary School. The SES and AIB LISC’s will meet with the board at 6 p.m.
