Dealing with a health pandemic and hiring a new school superintendent has Southern Door School Board member Janel Veeser looking at her first year of serving on the board as a “crazy” learning experience.
Veeser, who is the board treasurer, was re-elected this past Tuesday. Reflecting on the board’s accomplishments, Veeser notes that it was incredible that in-person learning has been maintained throughout the school year.
Veeser adds that the recent hiring of the new school superintendent, Chris Peterson, was the most impactful long-term decision made by the school board in the past year.
As far as the motivation to serve on the school board, Veeser cites having two children attending Southern Door schools and her graduation from the Leadership Door County program. Veeser will now have a full three-year term. Last year, she filled the vacant seat when Tammy Sternard resigned following her election as Door County Sheriff.
