SCOTTVILLE — The Mason County Central Board of Education bid farewell to a long-time trustee Monday during the regular board meeting at the high school.
Carl Geers, who has served on the board since 2009, was honored with words of thanks from Board President Jim Schulte, who announced Geers’ final meeting to board trustees and the public.
“We have a very young retiree in our presence, Mr. Carl Geers,” Schulte said. “This is your last meeting (and) we’d like to present you with a plaque.”
Geers was given the plaque, which Schulte read allowed.
“(This is) presented to Carl Geers for outstanding service on the board of education of the Mason County Central School District for his eight and one-half years of service to our students, 2009 to 2018,” Schulte said. “So thank you for your mentorship.”
