“The Holmes County Choir came to Bethlehem and put on an amazing performance,” said Kriser. “I was just wondering when we’d be able to be put on the agenda to get this started. We’ve got over 700 signatures from 700 individuals that want to see this happen.”

Kriser requested that she be placed on the agenda April’s meeting and Dixon explained that it was a personnel issue and couldn’t be placed on the agenda until Dixon had a recommendation and that wouldn’t be done until the regular hiring over the summer.

“The only definite answer we can give you right now is that it’s being looked into,” said Dixon. “We’re looking at every avenue, for instance we’re trying to see if a position has to be created or if we can use an already existing position to fill that need; not necessarily saying that the person would come from within our existing staff but that we won’t have to create a new position. We love what Holmes County Choir has done; it’s a wonderful program and we’d love to see that at all of our schools.”

Chairman Rusty Williams thanked the City of Bonifay and the Bonifay Fire Department for their recent honoring of the Holmes County High School’s boy’s basketball team for winning state.

“It was a wonderful presentation honoring our boys,” said Williams. “The City of Bonifay held a parade and ceremony for the boys and the Bonifay Fire Department provided a great lunch. They were very generous and I want everyone to know how much we appreciate them.”

The next scheduled board meeting is set for 9 a.m. on April 2 at the Holmes County District School Board located at 701 East Pennsylvania Ave. in Bonifay.
