RULH Board of Education holds organizational meeting

RIPLEY – A new year means a new organization for the Ripley Union Lewis Huntington Board of Education. They held their organizational meeting on Jan. 6 at RULH High School.

The new board president is Barry Sims. He replaced Jeff Cluxton, who served during the last school year. Jeff Wilson was named the vice president of the Board of Education.

Wilson enters a new term as a Board of Education member and was joined by Cluxton during their swearing in on Jan. 6.

The board also approved Superintendent Dr. Linda Naylor and Treasurer Jeff Rowley to keep their assigned roles for paying of bills and modifications of expenditures for the RULH District.

The organizational meeting also called for the assignment of roles to be selected by the Board of Education. These roles include appointing OSBA Conference Delegate, Legislative Liaison and a Public Records Trainee Designee.

Jeff Wilson was named the delegate for the OSBA with Jeff White to serve as the alternate. Cluxton was named legislative liaison. Sims was named the designee for Public Records Training.

The Board of Education named their time and place for scheduled business for the new year. All RULH Board of Education meetings will be held at RULH High School 7 p.m. the third Wednesday of the month.

On the list of topics for the evening was the status of the softball field at RULH Middle School. The wet weather conditions had prevented any further building to the fence surrounding the field but the Board was hopeful to have it opened by the first part of the spring to play games.

Also on the agenda, the baseball field at RULH Elementary school could be looking differently in the near future. The Board of Education is waiting to proceed with building a shelter for the community. The shelter had been planned for sometime as an agreement with the Village of Ripley to use the facility for high school baseball. The topic was once again tabled while other bids for constructions were sought by the Board of Education.

Jeff Cluxton and Jeff Wilson are sworn in for their next term as members of the RULH Board of Education by Treasurer Jeff Rowley.
