The Culver School Board honored a former long-time school board member this week.

Jim Wentzel served 13 years on the Culver School Board of Trustees from Sept. 9, 2004 to January 9, 2017. Wentzel said that he’s proud to have served this tenure on the board.

“It’s a great corporation” stated Wentzel. “You guys do an excellent job. The administration is excellent. You learn a lot of things about the school that a lot of people don’t understand. It was a great eye-opener. Being on this school board was enjoyable. There were some tough decisions that we made, but we always try and keep the kids first. That’s what we always have to do.”

Interim Superintendent Chuck Kitchell presented Wentzel with a plaque to commemorate his time on the board.

In other action, the board also accepted a $1,000 donation from the Culver Lion’s Club to purchase a handicap swing to be placed at the Culver Elementary School playground.
