DANVILLE — Eco-friendly ideas took center stage Monday at Danville’s school board meeting. FCCLA students Julie Didinger and Mason Ansel reprised the reusing/recycling presentation they gave at the chapter meeting. The pair talked about small things people can do to reduce their carbon footprint and why it is important to do so. For instance, individuals can use wall paper samples to make gift boxes and use newspaper to wrap gifts.
Library aide Sarajean Carlyle, announced her retirement effective at the end of the school year. She has been with Danville schools for six years.

It also approved the placement of two Mount Vernon Nazarene University students — Kirstie Kilmerten will be with intervention specialist Krishana White and Rebecca Fahrni will be with family and consumer science instructor Julie Divelbiss for the remainder of this school year. Kelsey Kaiser was accepted as a volunteer tutor working with third- and sixth-graders through a Kenyon college work study program and several volunteers were approved; Tammy Givens, Lou Ann Schultz and Sean Young as additional drivers for the Mock Trial program, Rebecca Fahrni as a volunteer driver to the FCCLA regional competition, retractive to March 3, and Donnie Endsley as a volunteer for the boys baseball program.
