Horicon School Board appoints new member

May 24, 2019

HORICON — The Horicon School District filled an open seat on its school board during its Board of Education meeting Monday night.

District Administrator Rich Appel said Janelle Nicolaus was appointed to the position following the resignation of Eric Krause-Emerick.

Krause-Emerick vacated the seat last month after moving to a new residence outside the jurisdiction of the area he represented.

Nicolaus will represent the village of Iron Ridge/village of Kekoskee. Her term will run until April 2020.

Following the appointment, school board officers were elected. They are President Tina Streblow, Vice President David Westimayer, Clerk Jim Grigg and Treasurer Amanda Remley.

Appel said the board approved resolutions for the issuance and sale of bonds totaling more than $8 million. The funds will be used for the Junior/Senior High School redesign and addition.

Van Brunt Elementary and Junior/Senior High School student parent handbooks were approved for the next school year.

Students in the district finish classes this week. The summer school program will be held Monday through Thursday mornings from June 10-27.

Horicon High School graduation takes place Saturday at 2 p.m. in the school gym.
