(MENA) The Mena School Board met Tuesday evening at the District Administration Building in downtown and accepted the resignations of Mena High School Assistant Principal Stephen Breedlove. Breedlove will become the new Principal at Harding Academy near Searcy.
Breedlove will be replaced by Bridget Buckley, in an inter-district transfer. The high school front office will also see a new Secretary, in Lauren Frost.
The board also reorganized its self at the meeting.
Board members chose Todd Aynes as its new board president, Kyle Cannon was re-elected as board vice president and Clint Montgomery was chosen as board secretary.
Immediately following the votes, former board president Ed Puckett, graciously turned the meeting over to Haynes and swapped seats at the table.
In financial matters, the board approved upon recommendation from Superintendent Benny Weston to solicit bids for a Certificate of Deposit for construction money that wasn’t utilized in the recent construction of the Louise Durham Elementary School project.
Board member Kyle Cannon suggested to his fellow board members to not get a term longer than twelve months. Most agreed, but will allow the administrative staff to study the best solutions for the board to look at, reconvening for the full board session.
