Verl Christensen announced he is stepping down as Preston School Board trustee after nearly 12 years of service. During that time he has been a part of some major remodeling and construction projects. School administration buildings were remodeled and some of the buildings constructed during his tenure include the bus barn, gymnasium and Craner Ag building.
“It’s time. . . 12 years is really too long for someone to be on the board,” Christensen said. “I’ve worked with some great people. It’s time to let someone else do it.”
School Board Chairman Fred Titensor said Christensen has provided very solid leadership to the community and district.
“I’ve been personally impressed that Mr. Christensen has always had the well being of our students and community at the forefront of his mind,” Titensor said.
“He has helped lead the school board in a building program that has set a good course for facilities for many decades to come.”
Titensor also highlighted Christensen’s ability to provide an appropriate balance of leadership that kept the board fiscally responsible, while taking care of the students in the district.
