Larsen says goodbye to district

Susie Pierce asked school board members to call an emergency meeting Wednesday to discuss insurance and restoration fees on the fire at Southmoore High School.

She said about 20 auditorium seats were damaged by the fire and many others received smoke and water damage.

The special meeting will be 5 p.m. Wednesday in the school administration building.

School board member Walt Larsen sitting in for the last time in 15 years said goodbye and was presented with a plaque which had a clock.

Larsen highlighted the three things he said he would always remember, one from the beginning of his term, the middle and the latter part.

The first night he was sworn in was the night to elect officers of the board. He was nominated for president and for once in his life he was at a lost for words. The board member who nominated Larsen said he was replacing the president so he should be the president.

May 3, 1999, was a date he would always remember, Larsen said.

"Every teacher, every teacher's assistant, janitor, secretary, pulled together like a shining beam," he said.

Wayland Bonds, Jeff Horn were involved in the recovery he said and the speed, efficiency and quality will always stay with him.

The third thing he said he will always remember was the time a female had applied for the athletic coordinator position.

Larsen thanked the school district for the support he has received the last 15 years and said he was leaving the board in steady hands "full of wisdom" and they would do a fine job.

Snow days will be made up April 19, which already was a snow day and the other three days will be added to the end of the school year.

Pierce said this would still allow school to be dismissed by Memorial Day.
