It wasn’t the first item on the school board’s January meeting agenda, but the resignation of board member Jay Meier was definitely the biggest item of the night. Meier explained to the board that he had gotten an unexpected offer that he couldn’t pass up. "It came a little unexpectedly, we didn’t plan on leaving Washburn this soon, but a good opportunity presented itself," he said. He went on to talk about how his experience on the school board helped him appreciate the education process more. "It’s allowed me to learn the other side of education on this level; it’s been a good experience for me. "It was a pleasure working with all of you," Meier said, finally. The mostly silent and somber faced board members motioned to accept the resignation and it was reluctantly approved unanimously.
