One month after being removed from her head girls basketball coaching position by a 6-1 vote by the Van-Far R-I School Board, Van-Far Kelly Borchert received a blessing last week when the board changed their decision. During their Executive Session held on Thursday, May 17, a 5-2 vote approved Borchert for the girls basketball coaching position for the 2018-19 season with job targets to be presented at the June meeting.
Both Dana Keller and Larry Wheeler cast the “No” votes.
“Just excited the board revoted and that they have faith in me to lead the Lady Indians in the right direction,” Borchert said.
Also during the Executive Session, the board hired Esther Robinson by a 6-1 vote as a Prom Sponsor with Tony Dameron casting the lone “No” vote.
The board also hired Lauren Dierkes as a teacher and Kris Cross as 12th grade lead sponsor.
Dillion Minor, Trevor Lower, Alex Flowers, and Zach Bouchard were hired as summer help for a total maximum of 500 hours.
Wes Rowden was hired as summer help for a maximum of 300 hours.
Minutes for the April 17 and May 10 meetings were also approved.
