USD 257 board members welcomed the leader of a construction company that will oversee $35 million in school projects over the next three years or so.
Randy Coonrod, chairman of the board for Coonrod & Associates, introduced himself to board members Monday. A committee selected Coonrod last week after interviewing three companies; the board officially approved a contract with the firm Monday night.
Coonrod will manage all aspects of construction related to a new $25.5 million elementary school, a $7 million science and technology building at Iola High School, and new heating, ventilation and cooling systems at Iola Middle School.
