MOUNT VERNON — As requested by a community member at last month’s meeting, the seating arrangement for the Knox County Career Center school board was reconfigured so none of the board members’ backs was to the audience during Thursday’s meeting.

The meeting featured several presentations concerning student activities. Tim Hall, collision repair instructor, and Don McDaniel, auto technology teacher, talked about the work being done on a 2010 F350 4x4 to get it ready for the Food For The hungry auction. They were assisted by students John Eisele, Tanner Jessup, Max Chalfant, R.J. Oosting and Austin Teet.

Science instructor Heidi May gave details about a grant opportunity to win funds for afterschool enrichment programs, the board visited the building trades project in the library area, Tammy Klein discussed Business Professionals of America activities and Nate Greene clarified the parameters of the after school Video Game Club.

Regarding personnel, the board, with a 5-0 vote in the absence of board members Margie Bennett and Steve Thompson, rescinded the high deductible health care plan that was approved at the September board meeting because it needs to be negotiated with the employee association. The board approved Bruce Kreidler as the coordinator/instructor for the new adult culinary program, effective Dec. 19 through June 30, 2013; added Aaron Behr to the substitute teacher list; and hired Bill Buxton and Yvonne Clutter as part-time instructors for short-term adult programs on an as-needed basis. The board approved Bennett’s attendance at the annual Federal Relations Network conference in Washington. D.C, in January, with KCCC to pay travel and hotel expenses.
