It is customary to recognize outgoing Board of Education members for their time serving the community.
Unfortunately, that time was never allowed to Ron Conner, who passed away over the summer while still seated on the Board of Education. Tuesday night, Superintendent Curt Nettles recognized the long-time Clinton High School principal and his service to the community.
Nettles praised Conner's outgoing nature to understand what was going on and why decisions were being made. Nettles appreciated Conner's approach.
Nettles says it is still strange not to have Conner around but he still there are reminders or him being around.
Ron's family was presented with a plaque from the Illinois School Board Association and his nameplate that sat at his seat on the School Board.
