Ken Christoferson said it was great to hear from each of the students and he thanked Kevin Plambeck for his work with the CTE program.

Julie Dean learned about a fact that was reported in the local newspaper; 80 years ago there was an "election of teachers." She also announced that Teacher Appreciation Week will be celebrated May 8-12, and she thanked all of the teachers for the work they do.

Superintendent Shumate compared her own personal experience as a high school student taking classes in Home Economics (sewing) and Woodshop, as it was quite different than today's CTE model. She thanked Kevin Plambeck for his service as the Director of CTE for the past 29 years, for his ability to assume the role as the Director of Technology for our district, and for everything he has done for students and the community.
