BONIFAY — More students are entering the Holmes County school systems, which was indicated in the regular approval of Out of County/State Students by the Holmes County District School Board during their meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 1.

“We are still getting more coming into the county than leaving,” said Superintendent Eddie Dixon. “This time we’ve got 12 coming in and only one going out.”

School board member Shirley Owens thanked the district’s financial department for “putting together such a comprehensive financial report.”

“It is really easy to read and navigate through,” said Owens. “They’ve done such an outstanding job.”

School board member Debbie Kolmetz informed the board that she was disappointed recently by the poor advertisement of an awards ceremony held at Ponce de Leon High School.

“There was no announcement of it on the school’s front or on their website,” said Kolmetz. “There was about only nine people in attendance. It should’ve been done at the end of the year and not three months into the school year.”
