Yankton School Board members said goodbye to Jay Williams at last night’s regular monthly meeting. After serving the board for three years, Williams’ term expired. Board President, Kathy Greeneway, says he will be missed.

Taking Williams’ place on the board is new member, Frani Kieffer. Greeneway is excited about the new addition.

Keifer says she has several goals in mind for her term on the board.

Kieffer was sworn into office last night, and her term will end in 2017. Matthew Pietz (peets) was elected as Board Vice President.
