The Bucyrus Board of Education put the spotlight on leadership during the regular monthly meeting March 31. The focus stemmed from The Leader in Me program, and featured Bucyrus Elementary students being recognized for different aspects of leadership.
34 students received commendations from the board during the meeting. Those students receiving commendations included: Quintessa Spellbound, Tyson O’Brien, Ella Hoover, Abbygail Stewart, Kamron Thompson, Isabella Stang, Mackenzie Booth and Cami Myers (Leadership in Art); Kaleb Adkins, Michael Spaulding, Tim Butler and Aizlee Boswell (Win-Win Café Leaders); Kaiden Bloomfield and Brody Higginbotham (Leadership in Sportsmanship); Macey Williams, Micah Heil, Gage Musselman, Riley Parker and Landon Chapman (Leadership in Music); Jayda Pickens, Marissa Middleton, Kylee Rowe, Grace Jackson, Madylynn Diller, Jake Stover, Brady Click, Aubrie Kimmel, Lacey Clayton, Lincoln Blizzard, Asher Farnwalt, Karleigh Shelton, Peyton Fackler, Keatin Lawhun and Eisley Graham (The Leader in Me commendations).
Following the student commendations, the board approved all agenda items as presented including an agreement with the GPD Group of Marion. The agreement is for architectural fees for upper level repairs at Bucyrus Elementary School. The board also accepted a donation from the Bucyrus City School District employees for the Bucyrus City School District Staff Scholarship.
“Our board members really enjoy being able to recognize students for all their outstanding accomplishments,” Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. “The members have also been incredibly humbled by the overwhelming support of the community for our students and staff from the very tragic loss of Noah Lear.
“Many area schools have shown their support for not just the Redmen family, but also for Noah’s family including the Wynford Local Schools’ contribution to his family of over $5,400.”
The Board of Education will meet again in for its regular monthly meeting at 7 p.m. in the Lincoln Administrative Center on April 28.
