Williamsburg board member resigns post

WILLIAMSBURG — A member of the Williamsburg Community School Board has resigned her post.

School board members accepted Amy Hileman’s resignation letter dated April 6 at the monthly meeting Tuesday night, and commended her for her years of service on the board.

Hileman gave no reason for her resignation in her letter and did not attend Tuesday night’s meeting. She did not respond to emails or a phone call from the Mirror.

According to district Business Manager Kalie Zabroksy, the school board will advertise the position on the district’s website. Interested people are encouraged to attend a board meeting to interview before the board. The date of the meeting will be posted on the school website and is open to the public. Hileman represented Woodbury Township and her replacement must come from the same municipality.

Board members will make a recommendation based on the interviews and then select a person to serve out the remainder of Hileman’s term, which runs through the end of this year.

In other business, the school board also approved the bylaws for a new school group, the Williamsburg Barbell Club, which was suggested by varsity football coach Ryan Hileman. The club will be open to boys and girls in the junior and senior high school from beginner to advanced level of ability, said district Superintendent Lisa Murgas.

The club has no entrance fees but Hileman does plan to have fundraisers to support the group. The students will be supervised as they work with the weights, Murgas said.
