Board Accepts Bid, Resignations, and Hires New Staff

At Marietta’s regularly scheduled meeting of the board of education on Monday night, May 6, the board considered several things. The first item for consideration was a presentation from Keystone Food Services representatives regarding a food service program.

“Although our cafeteria runs very efficiently we can see where a food service program could be beneficial to us, especially considering they take over most of the ever-changing and often overwhelming paperwork that goes with nutritional and financial coding required by the state and federal governments,” said Superintendent Brandi Naylor.

Naylor did stress that because of the cost of the program, it would have to be put out for competitive bids if the decision is made to use a food service program.

State Champs

Students stand on a podium with their awardSaturday, May 4 in Catoosa, Oklahoma was a good day to be a Marietta Indian. In May of 2018, Marietta High School’s boys track team ended a 37-year drought by winning the state championship. On Saturday, at the class 3A state meet, they did it again. And to make the day just a little sweeter, the girls team won third.

“We are so proud of our kids,” said Athletics Director Jared Messer. “They train hard all year, and it’s great to see that hard work pay off.”

On Friday, the meet had experienced a weather delay with some lightning and torrential rain in the area. Events were finally resumed, though rain stoppage was iffy at best. “The pouring rain was definitely not fun to run in, but I knew the weather was the same for everyone, so I just didn’t let myself think about it,” said Lady Indian Mandy Sykora. Saturday’s skies dawned sunny and blue. It was just that kind of day. A good day to be an Indian.
