Superintendent of Education Jack Treloar, on Nov. 4, presented a request from Business Manager Heidi Young to transfer $106,000 of 16th Section interest funds to the Qualified School Construction Bond debt service fund for the annual sinking fund deposit. The request was approved 4-0; board President Bobby McMullen was absent.

Additionally, Principal Laci Knight introduced Eupora High School senior Lauren Carney as the Webster County Board of Education Student of the Month for November.
