Freeman School Board reorganizes
Spangler, Podzimek are in; Maske resigns from other coaching positions
Cody Spangler and Karissa Podzimek joined the Freeman School Board of education, Emily Andersen was re-elected board chair and Cody Fransen was named vice-chair as the Freeman School Board reorganized for the new fiscal year in regular session Monday night, July 11.
Spangler and Podzimek were unopposed in their bid for election to the board and replace Slade Ammann and Kyle Weier, who chose not to seek re-election.
Doug McCune is the other member of the five-member board.
Monday’s meeting included a host of re-organizational formalities, like setting lunch and activity admission prices and declaring the legal publication and depositories; watch for those details in the minutes of the July 11 meeting that will be published next week.
