Board president's resignation letter

Newkirk Public School Board of Education:

 It is with sadness and gladness that I offer my resignation as school board member for Newkirk Public Schools. As you all know, our family made a transition after a death in the family. Our home was put on the market over a year ago; and now we have an offer that looks as if it will go through. The closing is set for the end of the month. We did manage to sell the home to a family with five children, so I feel that I am still doing my part.

 However, with the sale of the home, we no longer will be spending any time in Newkirk; therefore, I feel that I should resign my position.

 That said, I would like to still put in my two cents and ask that you appoint one of the Braman members into my slot. Per the consolidation agreement, both of the Braman positions will be eliminated at the end of the consolidation period, which ends in June. I strongly feel the Newkirk district NEEDS a voice from the Braman area. Both Susan and Luke have hearts for the children and what is best for that area. Both currently serve the area well and would continue to do so for the length of my unexpired term.

 Thank you for allowing me to work with you in serving the children and parents of Newkirk and Braman. I am proud of what has been accomplished and look forward to reading about future accomplishments.

Terri Gregory Newkirk Board of Education
