Letter to the Editor: A Thank You to Departing School Board Member and an Invitation to Apply


To Centralia School District Patrons:

The Centralia School Board of Directors would like to thank Will Henriquez for his time and commitment to the district and our community.

His wisdom and perspective will be missed. Unfortunately, his business commitments have forced him to resign, creating a vacant seat on the board.

We encourage concerned and committed citizens to apply for this position. We invite you to consider serving on the board and assisting us as we support Superintendent Dr. Lisa Grant and all the district employees. 

We believe the district is on an upward trajectory to create and opportunity for every student to attain personal and educational excellence. Serving takes time and commitment. If you have a passion to support our children, please consider applying.

Applications will be accepted through Oct. 14. Interviews will be scheduled for the morning of Saturday, Oct. 22. 

Board approval is planned for Oct. 26. The formal appointment will occur on Nov.  23, in time for the candidate to participate in the regular board meeting.

On behalf of the Centralia School District Board of Directors,

Tim Browning

Centralia School Board president
