HUMBOLDT The USD 258 board of education voted unanimously on Monday to lend the Humboldt name to a new area trapshooting club that will be formed in partnership with the Kansas State High School Clay Target League. The team is open to students in grades six through 12.
The board, which discussed the program at length at their previous meeting, will not fund any aspect of the club and will not host club-related events but will allow the team to compete under the Cubs banner. Participating students must meet the districts standards of academic and behavioral eligibility. Students are responsible for supplying their own shotguns, ammunition, and eye and hearing protection, and must complete a league-approved firearm certification program before joining the team.
More information about the club will be circulated by flyer to parents and guardians in the district and will appear on USD 258s newly redesigned website in the coming days.
FINALLY, the board approved a bid from Humboldt-based Barfoot Lumber for materials to be used for the districts Building Trades program. The bid for $28,271 includes lumber, roofing (excluding trusses), sub-flooring, and windows. The board approved the bid 4-1. Board member Kevin Heisler, who made noises in favor of Cleaver Farm and Home citing the districts long, positive relationship with the Chanute-based lumber supplier was the lone dissenting vote. Board members Joe Works and Helen Harrington were absent from Mondays meeting.
