Lanesboro School Board hears about Tex-Mex trip


Mon, Jan 26th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Education



Dave Rodgers and three high school students, Cassie Rued, Leah Ruen, and Alyssa Gathje, were at the Lanesboro School Board meeting to talk about the recent Tex-Mex trip. Dave Rodgers was a chaperone on the last trip two years ago. This time he was in charge, and shared that he was very excited about how the trip turned out.

The weather was a little chilly for the 33 students who went, but Rodgers said they all loved the beach and the ocean. He was impressed with the way the students behaved, and felt they all had a great time.

The trip was very educational as well as fun. They visited the site of the Oklahoma City bombing, which was a somber event. They also visited the Alamo. The favorite by far for most was the site of the John F. Kennedy assassination in Dallas, Texas. Rodgers said they watched the movie JFK before the trip to get some background information. Leah Ruen agreed that her favorite was the JFK museum. Cassie Rued said she had been looking forward to the Alamo, but it was not as exciting as the JFK museum. Leah also shared a memory from the visit to South Padre, where they had a dolphin tour. The tour guide told them they were the best high school group they had ever had.

“The students really represented our school well,” said Rodgers. Rodgers also felt they took the trip in as a school event, not just a vacation, and really got a lot out of it. “It’s really good for the kids,” he said. “I hope we can continue to do it.”

The board acknowledged Rodgers for his hard work and the students for their behavior and representing the district well. The trip takes place every two years for grades 10-11.

Annual organization

The board members will retain their positions this year, with Dave Ruen the chairperson, Dave Lawstuen as vice-chair, Steve Snyder the clerk, and Lolly Melander as treasurer.

Ruen said the salary of the board members has remained the same since 2005, and the chair’s salary the same since 2007. A vote was passed to keep them the same again this year. The policy committee assignments will also remain the same, with the exception of one minor change.

The official newspaper remains the News Leader, Merchants Bank the official depository, and Dick Nethercutt the legal counsel.

An annual resolution was passed to allow the superintendent to make recommendations for reductions in p .....
