Monday’s meeting was the first for McElligatt, but was the last for Director of Operations Scott Williams.

School Board President Norm Wooten offered a warm welcome to McElligatt, and spoke of how much Williams will be missed, especially after all of his hard work on the new high school project.

(School Board Newbie 3: :46 sec "Commander, we appreciate … of your life.")

Williams served as the Coast Guard representative on the school board from 2006 until 2008 when he was hired as the director of operations.
