SUPERINTENDENT – During the Tuesday, Jan. 23 meeting of the Montrose Community Schools Board of Education, interim superintendent Wayne Wright credited former superintendent Dr. Edward Graham with leaving the district in great shape.

Three of the hot spots were supposed to be fixed last summer, but weren’t. The recent rainstorms have brought the problem to the forefront. Wright is in contact with several roofers trying to get the repairs done.

CORRECTION – In the Sunday, Jan. 21 issue of the Tri-County Citizen, it was reported that language arts teacher Michael Ballor would be leading a group of St. Charles High School students on a trip to Washington, D.C. in 2019. It was incorrectly reported that Ballor had previously led Hemlock school groups on D.C. trips eight times. He clarified that he did not lead the Hemlock group. Ballor participated as a staff member on those trips for eight years.
