9.g. Accept Resignation - Jodi Sandmeyer, Co-Student Council Advisor

Dr.  Parks,

For the past six years, I have been the co-advisor of Student Council.  I have had a great time.  I have enjoyed planning Homecoming, Snow Days, Spring kickball tournaments, blood drives, and concession stand activities.  I will miss working with the students.  However, it is time for me to resign from the position.  My daughter is planning to play sports this fall, she is in dance, and I need to spend more time running my ranch. 

Nevis has many talented staff who will have the time and energy to devote to the students.  It has worked very well for Lynne and me to lead the group together.  We each brought our own strengths.  We could bounce ideas off each other.  We also had two people to lead events and work concession stands.  With two people, we supported each other and backed each other up.  I would recommend a co-advisor situation continue in the future. 

Thank you,
Jodi Sandmeyer

9.h. Accept Resignation - Lynne Gustafson, Yearbook and Co-Student Council Advisor
Presenter:  Dr. Parks
Description:  Dr. Parks,

It is with a heavy heart that I am submitting my resignation as advisor for Yearbook and co-advisor for Student Council.  I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of these activities and working with the kids.  But, due to my current health issues, I feel I will not be able to handle these responsibilities to the very best of my abilities.

If at all possible, I would encourage the Student Council position be filled with two people.  It worked very well for Jodi and I to handle these responsibilities as we could work together sharing ideas, planning and covering each other whenever needed, as we brought different strengths to the position.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as an advisor for these positions.

Lynne Gustafson
