Blackville school board recognized for service

For the Blackville School Board, it was a night of praise - this time it was the school board members receiving praise.
January is School Board Appreciation Month and teachers, principals and students joined together to show their gratitude for what school board members do for their schools during the regular board meeting Monday, Jan. 14.
Each board member received tokens of appreciation from the schools' adminstrative teams.
Blackville-Hilda High School student Arnius Williams and BHHS Principal David Norman showed the board members a painting Williams is working on to display in the district office in honor of the school board members.
In other business:
Norman outlined the 2013-14 school calendar, which was approved by the board.
The board entered a closed session to discuss financial updates and personnel issues.
The People-Sentinel will follow-up with these two issues in next week's edition.
