Likes new school board

Dear Editor,
I read with great pleasure in the Plaindealer about the appointment of Heather Yeowell and Cindy Lystad to the Ridgway School Board. With their experience serving on other Boards and their commitment to the Ridgway community, they will help keep the Ridgway District as one of the top performing districts in Colorado. The Board's first action electing Greg Lawler as Board President is a wise move that will pay immediate dividends through his proven leadership and professionalism. These three members along with incumbents Colin Lacy and Tim Taplin will be an effective, dedicated Board. Lastly, Supt. Steve Smith, with his strong administrative team, will continue to provide insightful vision and collaborative decision-making that will maintain the excellence Ridgway staff, parents and students have come to
expect. The RSD is in "good hands.”
