School board seat to be filled
Campbell, Creech, Petit
Campbell, Creech, Petit
The Jennings County School Board has released the scheduled meetings they have planned for the upcoming week.

The schedule has been altered as the board begins the process of selecting one of three candidates to fill the seat left vacant by Susan Taylor. Taylor resigned from the board on June 30 so she could accept a position as a Jennings County High School guidance counselor. Taylor's seat requires the board member to reside in Center Township.

Three people will be interviewed for the position. Zack Campbell, Amanda "Mandy" Creech and Amy Pettit all submitted applications to be considered to fill the remaining time of Taylor's term.

On Monday, July 24, the board will begin the night by meeting in executive session at 5 p.m. Starting at 5:30 p.m., the board will interview each of the three candidates during a public meeting.

The regular meeting of the board will begin a half-hour later than normal to allow for plenty of time to interview the prospective board members. This meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, July 26, the school board will have a special meeting to appoint the new board member. This meeting will get underway at 6:30 p.m.

All the meetings will be held in the Jennings County School Corpora­tion's Central Administra­tion Office located at 34 Main St., North Ver­non.

The application process for applying to be considered for the vacant set on the school board included submitting your views on a number of different areas.

Below are the answers provided by the three candidates to those questions.

Editor's Notebook
A night at the 4-H auction

For a city slicker, I'm starting to get used to the 4-H livestock auction. After several years of covering the event, I have finally learned what a barrow is, for instance, and how ornery these critters can be.

On the morning of July 17, a very large hail storm pounded the North Vernon area. This dramatic picture was taken at the big lake in Country Squire Lakes by photographer David L. Hanner Jr., who wrote it cost him "a cracked windshield and a lot of time drying my camera, but it was well worth it." Another photo from this storm appears on page 9A.-Submitted Photo by David L.
