Zeke Foster goes to nationals in archery

Cheraw School Board enjoyed some sweet congratulations to winners at the Future Business Leaders of America, going on to state in Vail, and Zeke Foster, going to nationals in archery in Utah. The FBLA members are Blake Ramsey, George Cardenas, Joslyn Burnett, Alley Bartholomew, Lexi Mayo, Weston Buhr, Ryan Nunez, Alyssa Mackey, Zeke Foster, Taylor Gumke, and Nigel Gronemeyer. Expenses were approved for all. Tammy Collins is the proud sponsor of FBLA. Foster’s archery sponsor is Rourke Sisson, whose expenses to Utah were covered, also.

The School Board approved the senior trip to Denver, which includes a suite with catered meals at the Rockies game between May 7 and May 10. What more could you want? They just needed permission to use the bus for travel, because they had made more than enough for their expenses with various fund-raising activities. They also are sponsored by Tammy Collins. The enterprising senior class members are Nigel Gronemeyer, Lexi Mayo, Blake Ramsey, Ryan Nunez, Zeke Foster, and Taylor Gumke.

The board accepted the resignation of Shawn Rodwell. They also vote to start their search for a new superintendent. Parent Nicki Ehrlich expressed her appreciation as a military wife for Principal Todd Werner helping her child get adjusted to a new school.

Maintenance Director Adam Torres presented several options to the board for bus transportation - two small buses not requiring a Commercial Driver’s license to operate, and/or a large bus, which would require a CDL to operate. A supplemental budget was approved. Todd Werner requested the elementary mystery trip be reinstated. He was asked to come back at the next meeting, March 26, with expenses.
