Port Angeles: School Board president stepping down

PORT ANGELES — School Board President Ken Schermer is divesting himself from direct involvement with the School District after 51 years of service.

Schermer will leave the post Sept. 30 due to health reasons.

“After 51 years of direct involvement in working with children, it’s with great reluctance that I send you this letter of resignation from the Port Angeles School District Board of Directors,” Schermer wrote in a letter detailing his reasons for stepping down.

“Since I am no longer able to actively participate and feel that it’s time for someone else to have the opportunity to serve, I ask you to please accept my resignation as of Sept. 30, 2002.”

The School Board officially accepted the letter of resignation Monday.
