 KHS Building Corp. to Fill Two Vacancies

March 18, 2009 - After nearly five years, the Knightstown High School Building Corporation is expected, possibly as soon as tomorrow, to fill two vacancies created by resignations that occurred in 2004.

Formed as a nonprofit corporation in March 2001, the KHSBC's primary purpose had been to acquire a site for a new KHS, get the school built, and then lease the it back to CAB. The first seven members were selected by the CAB School Board.

Two of the KHSBC's original members, Debi Ware and President Stephanie True, resigned in 2004 to take seats on the Charles A. Beard School Board. After that, the remaining five members, Vice President Jeff White, Janet Buckles and Rob Winters, never reconvened to select Ware's and True's replacements.

At a special meeting on March 10 to discuss refinancing issues, CAB Superintendent Gary Storie advised the four KHSBC members in attendance that their bylaws required them to fill the vacancies. Once they are back to full membership, Storie said bylaws require the selection of officers.

If they wanted, Storie said the KHSBC might be able to amend the bylaws and reduce its size to five members. Weiland, however, said he thought having seven members provided better representation, and that the "broader the scope, the better."

Ware and True had been, respectively, residents of Greensboro and Wayne townships. To keep the KHSBC geographically diverse like the CAB School Board, it was suggested that their replacements be from the same areas, although the KHSBC bylaws simply require members to live within the CAB's boundaries.

Huffman asked whether Ware, who failed in her bid for reelection to the school board last spring, would be eligible to rejoin the building corporation. Storie said she would be.

CAB School Board Vice President Steve Dalton, who attended last week's KHSBC meeting with four other school board members, said he thought the school board would be able to come up with names of possible replacements within a week. An agenda for the school board's March 17 meeting had this issue listed as item of new business.

Storie also advised KHSBC members at last week's meeting that they should have been meeting yearly, according to their bylaws. Weiland said there had been no annual meeting for a few years, but that he had simply gone to former CAB attorney Ed Dunsmore's office to sign paperwork that needed to be filed annually with the state.
