Olympia North was the sight of the fall Corn Belt Division meeting for the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) on October 13. Musical entertainment was provided by the OHS Chamber Choir during dinner. The business meeting followed, including reports from the Board of Directors and IASB Deputy Executive Director Ben Schwarm. Two professional development breakout sessions were provided for attendees. Presenters included Cindy Hamblin, Director of Illinois Virtual Schools and Tim Ryan, Founder and CEO of A Man in Recovery. Mrs. Hamblin provided a glimpse of what IVS offers to school districts in terms of summer school, credit recovery and off-site classes needed for a variety of other reasons. Mr. Ryan drew on his personal experiences to inform and aid families of at-risk youth to fulfill his mission of promoting awareness of life-threatening effects of addiction. A special thank you to the Olympia Maintenance, Food Service and Technology Departments for their work with this event.
