Members of the Cumberland Board of Education heard good things about the district's Agriculture program at their monthly meeting.

Charlie Sappington and Colin Cole were on hand to thank the Board for its support of the program at Cumberland High School.  Cole announced that the Forestry Team placed eighth nationally in competition.  Sappington explained his agenda for the spring semester as he serves as President-Elect of the National Agriculture Educator Association.

Also, high school principal Todd Butler congratulated Wyatt Lewis on his selection as an All-State Musician.  Lewis is one of 40 trumpet players selected to perform for the Illinois Music Educators Association in Peoria.  There was also recognition for the Cumberland High School cheerleading squad that completed fundraising necessary for their trip taken to the Capitol One Bowl over Christmas Break.

In personnel moves, the Cumberland board employed Rochelle Repking as assistant middle school volleyball coach, then accepted the resignation of Susan Kruse as a classroom aide.
