The board heard from Doug Blevins, who said the band is requesting the Band Boosters to operate the concession stands during the volleyball and basketball season for the 2019-20 school year. The board unanimously voted to approve the fundraiser request.
In other business, the board accepted the resignation of cafeteria employee Linda Johnson and agreed to hire Megan Walker for the cafeteria. Travis Gregory moved to accept Kelly George, Maria Aguinaga, Martha Bell, Stephanie Fletcher, Holly Birchefield, Summer Byrd and Rine Anjerok as cafe substitutes, and the board unanimously agreed to do so.
