DANVILLE — Community member Deb Payne received a Golden Apple award Monday at Danville’s school board meeting. The board commended Payne for her dedication to the district — heading up the football concession stand for about 20 years. Her efforts, district treasurer Mary Payne said on Tuesday, benefited both the athletic boosters and the band boosters organizations.
Regarding personnel, the board accepted a letter of resignation from custodian Pam Mickley, retroactively effective June 20. It approved a new five-year contract for treasurer Mary Payne, effective Aug. 1 through July 31, 2117, and hired Michael McCormick as a fifth-grade teacher, Marie Mosher as a junior high science teacher and Jill Lyons as a second-grade teacher. The board employed Carol Newbold as federal grants coordinator, added to the classified substitute list, issued several supplemental contracts and approved a quartet of volunteers for the 2012-13 football season.
Besides approving routine monthly and end-of-the-fiscal-year financial actions, the board accepted the following donations: $290 from St. Luke Knights of Columbus for headsets; $500 from Ariel Corp. for Mock Trial; anonymous donations of $500 for FCCLA and $900 for Mock Trial; and 11 commodes from Mansfield Plumbing Products for the high school restroom remodeling project.
