There will be three new faces when the Clay Community School Board of Trustees meet in July, as Rob Miller, Amy Adams and Ron Scherb, will be assuming the three at-large positions replacing Ted Jackson, Brian Atkinson and Terry Barr.
All three new members are happy to be able to have the opportunity to serve on the board.
"I am very honored and humbled that the community has the confidence in me to serve," Adams said.
"I agree," Miller added. "It is a very humbling feeling and I'm very excited for the opportunity."
All three members are waiting anxiously for their first board meeting and plan to hit the ground running.
"This is a very honorable position," Scherb said. "I hope to work with everyone, from community members and the administration."
Scherb hopes to work with everyone involved to continue the success of Clay Community Schools.
"I would like to talk with both boards," he said. "The current one and the new one as well as the Superintendent (Dan Schroeder) about the current state of the economy."
With the economy in turmoil, all three hope to continue focusing on education.
"I want to find out what the teachers need in the classrooms," Adams said. "I am a firm believer that teachers should run their classrooms, principals run their schools and as a board we should support them."
Scherb agrees that keeping teachers in the classrooms is key to success of all students within CCSC.
"We don't want to be like other corporations and have to let so many teachers go," he said. "We need to continue to keep the teachers, teaching."
"If the bus garage is still an issue in July then it will need to be addressed," Miller said. "I have a lot of learning to do with the procedures and policies but inevitably it will come down to money and how we can save."
The results for the three Clay Community School Corporation at-large positions include:
* Rob Miller -- 3,106
* Amy Adams -- 2,633
* Ron Scherb -- 2,227
* Barbara Nicoson -- 1,994
* Philip Greenwell -- 1,057
* Leo Southworth -- 1,006
The new members will be sworn in and attend their first school board meeting July 8.
