Re-1 to Honor Outgoing and Welcome Incoming School Board Members

Huerfano Re-1 will be honoring the years of service to outgoing board members on Monday evening at 5:30. With the utmost respect and sincerity, I will greatly miss the camaraderie, professionalism, ability to have varying opinions and come to a solution without argument and always try to do right by our children and employees. I am truly saddened by the prospect of losing 4 incredible board members. These 4 have served your school district well. Please come to the District office November 11 at 5:30 to wish them well and thank them for their service. We, I, appreciate you Julia Marchant, Eva Vigil, Dave Tesitor and Jaye Sudar.
