President Retires From School Board

The 2014 December school board meeting marked school board president Tom Tipton’s last as an official.

Tipton served on the board for 22 years and was presented with a plaque during the meeting to honor his time there.

“Thank you for this,” said Tipton. “I don’t want anyone to think I’m abandoning the board. I would like to see someone else step in. Everyone that I served with brought something to the board and I think I’ll miss it.”

Taking Tipton’s place as president is Brad Cooper, the non-incumbent that won the open slot.  He is a physical therapist at the County Hospital.
