Glen Bennett leaving Paris School Board

Glen Bennett has notified the Paris Jt. 1 School District that he is resigning his position on the Board of Education, effective May 1, 2011, district administrator Roger Gahart announced in a press release today.

Bennett has been a board member for six years.

According to the press release:

Mr. Bennett is reducing his hours of employment to spend more time with his family at their farm up north. “Though I will continue living in Paris Township for the time being, I feel that being here just two or three days each week I will not be able to effectively stay in touch with the needs of the school district.”

The Paris Board of Education may appoint a community member to fill the vacancy for the remainder of Bennett’s term, which expires in April of 2012, or the Board could choose to leave the position vacant until next April’s election.

Mr. Bennett played a key role in the large-scale building renovation that took place in 2006. District Administrator Roger Gahart thanked Bennett for his service to the district, “Glen Bennett is a true advocate for children who always remained focused on the best interests of our students, as well as the district overall. On behalf of our school community, I thank Glen for his years of dedication and hard work, and wish him and his family all the best.”

In thanking the community for the opportunity to serve Mr. Bennett stated, â€œIt has been a genuine pleasure serving on the Paris Board for the past six years. I have enjoyed working with Paris’ fine staff of professionals, and will miss my associations here. I wish continued success for the district.”
