Three spots open on St. Stephen's school board
Feb 24, 2014 - From staff reports
The St. Stephen's Indian School Educational Association is having an election for its board of directors March 11. Candidates will be elected to represent Districts I, II and II.
One seat is open in each district. Potential candidates must submit their interest in writing to the school board's secretary, Tamara Duran, by 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Candidates who have applied include Dominic Littleshield for District I, William C'Hair for District II and Norman Willow for District III. All three are current board members. The board also includes two community at-large members.
The selected board members will serve two-year terms and must be members of the association. District I must be represented by someone living in Riverton or the Beaver Creek area, District II hopefuls must reside in Arapahoe, and District III candidates must live in Ethete. To qualify, the individual also must have attended at least one special or regular board meeting since the association's last annual meeting. The next board meeting is Tuesday.
"We will fill them in on the expectations," St. Stephen's superintendent Mike Hejtmanek said.
A community meeting will be Tuesday with a dinner at 5 p.m. before the regular school board meeting at 6 p.m.
March 11 also will be the day of the association's annual meeting.
