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.
