At the Monday, May 6 meeting of the SCSD#2 Board of Trustees several staff and teachers were recognized: Classified Staff of Year staff member Dan White; District Teacher of the Year Sheridan Junior High physical education teacher Darin Gilbertson. Kasey Garnhart, activities director, acknowledged Winter Coaches of the Year, Ryan Sullivan, 4A Girls Basketball, & Taylor Kelting, 4A Boys Indoor Track.

SHS Principal Scott Cleland introduced two Daniels Fund Scholars, Caitlin Rodgers & Jhett West. He also talked about the UW Trustee Scholars from SHS.

Students Lincoln Carroll, Georgia Gould, Grace Hinton, Dillon Lemon, Anderson Murray, Katelyn Reckard, and Garrett Spielman attended the meeting.

Cleland also mentioned that SHS is the 2024 US News & World Report’s #1 High School in Wyoming, and he talked about some of the requirements for the nomination.

In his superintendent’s report, Scott Stults said that it was honor to be named as the #1 high school. He said that the school has great kids and great families and phenomenal adults that get to work with them every day. And it was great that they spent an hour recognizing our students.

He added that this week is American education week, and they are celebrating their educators

Stults also talked about some of the events going on this week, including the upcoming graduations.

In other business, the board heard from Director of Facilities Troy Decker about some projects that are planned at the schools, including a report on the new chiller at the Junior High which was installed over spring break.

He also talked about reconfiguration of the FACS Room at the high school to allow for better working conditions for the staff and students. The board approved the bid from In-Yarak Consturtion for $1,476,000 to do the upgrade on the room.

The board also approved the purchase of a tip skillet for the cooks. He said the tilt skillet is used in over half of the cooking activities, browning hamburger, cooking chili, soups, stews, pasta and sauces. The board approved the purchase of a Vulcan VG series skillet, $26,859. They also agreed to accept the bid from Sysco as the supplier of items for the food services.

Stults also discussed the blended and virtual programming. He said this was ‘pilot year’ for the program.

Trustee Shelta Rambur added “I appreciate this program for the students, because as we all know, not everyone fits in the big box, and I am so happy that we are about education and individualized education.”

Stults also talked about student cell phone use, and that will be another story posted later on Sheridanmedia.
