A new contract also was offered to Jon Marquez as the Riverton High School and Riverton Middle School choir teacher, effective Monday, Feb. 17.
Marquez recently completed his student teaching in Omaha, Neb.
Marquez is a graduate of Chadron State College in Nebraska, where he was a paraprofessional in the music department at the Chadron Middle School and high school for four years.
"The Chadron music teacher that he worked with shared that Jon was more a team teacher than a para, and when he left, many parents called the school board to get him back, but funding did not allow it," a letter of introduction for Marquez reads.
Snyder said there were two "excellent" applicants for the position. Marquez expedited his arrival in Riverton.
