IASD Selects Newest Member

February 17,  2009

The Ironwood Area School Board held its regular February meeting last. The board wasted no time in appointing a new member to their ranks. The board unanimously appointed  Doug Palmeter  to fill the vacant position created by Linda Dean's resignation.  Palmeter was a difficult choice for the board. He was the only choice. Given the profile and history of the current board it should come as no surprise that no one else offered to enter the arena.

The Board postponed making a decision on entering the program.
