According to Delany the request for proposal to locate a new auditor will begin a short time before the end of the school year.
While several items were checked off the to-do list, the meeting was not all business.  Several members of the student body showed off science projects.  Delany says the Board Commendation offers committee members a chance to see successes in and out of the classroom.

 

A science project constructed by Brandon Bartlet, Griffin Hall and Hayden George claimed 1st place at several science fairs this year.
