RULH School Board approves season passes for home games

By Martha Jacob –

The Ripley-Union–Lewis-Huntington Schools Board of Education met in regular session on Nov. 16 and heard a report from two high school English teachers, Michael Scanlan and Pam Fannin.
The two spoke about the partnership with the Maysville Community and Technical College that have allowed RULH students to take college classes while still in high school.
Members of the board expressed their appreciation for the opportunities that have been provided to the students through the partnership.
Ripley High School Athletic Director Jason Thompson made a proposal to the board regarding season passes for home games. After a brief discussion on the proposal, the board approved season passes for all home games. The passes will be sold at the high school office and at all home games.
Ripley High School Principal Susie Skinner made a presentation to the board about random drug testing for students who are involved in extra-curricular activities, such as sports. The board asked for additional information regarding the proposal.
During Superintendent Dr. Linda Naylor’s report to the board, she said she had met with the District Wellness Committee which is overseeing various activities promoting good nutrition and fitness for students and staff.
“Our district Leadership Team had its second meeting of the year last week,” Dr. Naylor said. “It’s final project close-out meeting for the House Bill 264 project was held on Nov. 2 and the district is already realizing savings on utility bills from the energy updates made during the project.
“Also, I have emailed Dr. Kevin Boys, president of SSCC, several times regarding the possible dates and times for a district strategic planning session he is organizing.
“Myself and some of our teachers and Principal White and some board members all participated in a tour of the PCP Champion Metal Works facility next to the high school. Mr. Brian Faught, the plant manager gave us the tour and the group discussed several potential future partnerships.”
Dr. Naylor added that she had participated in the Community Connectors training at the Brown County Education Service Center on Thursday and discussed notes from a previous superintendents’ meeting with Jim Frazier. She also met with the Neola representative to review the policy updates for fall 2016, followed by a meeting to discuss the updates as well as new technology policies.
“On Oct. 28, I met with J.R. Roush, the Southern State Community College CCP coordinator,” Naylor said, “We discussed the 2017-2018 plans for the CCP program at RULH. I also met with Mrs. Skinner and Ms. Osman regarding the CCP Program. “
The board later accepted the resignation for the purpose of retirement from Sgt. Major Otis Kokensparger, Marine Corp Jr. ROTC instructor, effective June 30, 2017.
“Sgt. Major Kokensparger has given many years of service to the RULH School District,” Dr. Naylor said. “And more importantly he has made a huge impact on our students. He will be greatly missed.”
The board approved the employment of the following supplemental positions; including Jason Baum, prom sponsor and Patty Ream, technology assistant at the high school. Julie Blackburn was approved as a part-time cashier. Previs Kirk was approved as an unpaid volunteer assistant coach for Jr. High boy’s basketball.
