Noble Local Schools among Straight A grant winners

Consortium of area schools spear-heading technology initiative

SARAHSVILLE, Ohio -- The Noble Local Schools will engage in a new technology initiative thanks to a state grant awarded to it and other local districts.

Superintendent Dan Leffingwell told the Noble Local Board of Education on Thursday that the district was part of a consortium of schools awarded a first-round, Straight A grant for the tech program. Leffingwell said that pooling resources with other districts will allow area schools to pursue more ambitious projects at a fraction of the expense:

The East Guernsey, Rolling Hills, Maysville, Sheridan and Tri-Valley districts are also part of the initiative. Leffingwell said that the new programs will also be made possible by improvements at the high school computer lab, including the addition of 80 desktop computers.

The Board recognized volunteers Justin Hitchens and Chad Schmelzenbach for spear-heading improvements at the softball field. Hitchens said that special thanks goes to Antero Resources, who donated around $65,000 in gravel to help create a drive and parking area near the field.

Board member Lucy Bates reported to that Lydia Fogle, a student at the Mid-East Career and Technology Center, recently took the bronze medal for cosmetology in the national SkillsUSA competition.

The Board approved the following contracts: Bonnie Flynn as K-5 art and T.A.G. teacher, Stephanie Givens as administrative aide, Nellie Leech as S.A.D. advisor, Ginnie Dudley as assistant treasurer and Brian Johnson and Linda Winegardner as transportation co-directors.

The Noble Local Board of Education will next meet in regular session on Thursday, August 21 at 6:30 p.m.
