Crescent School Board member resigns

JOYCE — The Crescent School District is preparing to replace a school board member who resigned halfway through his term.

Lee Evinger resigned from the board Oct. 25, and the board will consider accepting his resignation at its Tuesday, Nov. 26, meeting, Superintendent Dave Bingham said.

“Please consider this message as my formal resignation as a school director at Crescent School,” Evinger wrote in an email to Bingham.

“Please also convey my sincere thanks to the other our board members for allowing me to work with them in service to the school. I am truly thankful and grateful for the experience.”

Bingham said Evinger is moving out of state.

He said after the board takes officially action on the resignation, the district will develop a process for the board to appoint someone to serve until the expiration of that term at the end of 2021.

Evinger was elected to the position in November 2017.

Bingham said he is hopeful that the board can appoint a new board member during its January meeting.
