SCUD releases results of superintendent evaluation

The South Central Unified School District #5’s Board of Education gave high praise to Superintendent Julie Otero on Monday night, a year after her hire date, prior to unanimously approving another year on her contract.

“Julie’s done a great job in certain areas,” President Lance Williams said during the board’s regular meeting on June 15 at Lawrence-Nelson High School in Nelson. “Overall, the first year in, she’s really on track.”

While there remains room for improvement, several board members commended Otero for how she has led SCUD and liaised with the board.

“The communication is so much better than it was,” member Kim Story said, adding that board committees have been meeting more regularly under Otero’s guidance than they had been prior to her arrival to the district.

3 co. families earn Aksarben Pioneer Farm Award

In a fast-paced world with up to the minute news and technological advances making your cell phone obsolete upon purchase, it’s hard to imagine owning anything longer than nine-months to a year.

Each year, Aksarben pays homage to the dedicated and hard-working Nebraskan families who have done just that. These families have each met the incredible milestone of owning at least forty-acres of farmland within one family for one-hundred or one-hundred and fifty years, respectively. To put that into perspective, Nebraska has only existed as a state for152 years.
