Outgoing school board member recognized, Martin returns as trustee


As one member wraps up an eight-year term on the Brownstown Central Community School Corp. board of trustees, a former member returns.

Bradie Hall, who has represented Owen Township for the past eight years, recently was presented a plaque to commemorate her service. Superintendent Tim Taylor said he appreciates her service to the board.

Hall was unable to attend the June 9 board meeting, but David Martin was there. After taking two years off following a four-year term, Martin recently was appointed by the Pershing Township trustee to represent that area on the school board. His four-year term will start in July.

The way the appointed school board is set up, there is a rotating schedule between Pershing, Owen and Salt Creek townships where there has to be members from two of the townships serving at a time.

That means this year, it was time for Hall to go off of the board and Pershing Township to select a representative.

Overall, the board has two members appointed by the Brownstown Town Council and five appointed by township trustees. The other townships are Brownstown, Driftwood and Grassy Fork.

Brownstown is one of eight school corporations in the state with an appointed board.
