School Board, directors recognize Weier for years of service

Aug. 24, 2010

The Hamilton School Board recognized Anita Weier at its regular meeting Aug. 16 for her years of service as the Hamilton Education Foundation (HEF) executive director. Weier recently resigned her position – one she took on after teaching at Hamilton High School for 40 years.

 

Superintendent Kathleen Cooke, Ph.D., praised Weier for fulfilling the role as executive director, treasurer and secretary for 17 years. Cooke said Weier’s contributions included turning the fledgling HEF into a foundation that is a role model in the state, expanding fine arts experiences in the district and advocating for children through successful fundraising. Since its inception, HEF has provided $972,139 in grants and awards to students and staff members.

 

HEF Board Chairman George Semrad said the board will never be able to replace Weier, “but we had a very good teacher.” Another HEF Board member, Sherry Howard, thanked Weier for “the amazing amount of time and effort you have put into this foundation.”

 

With Weier’s departure, the HEF Board established an interim plan for 2010-11 in which Ann Ubert will serve as executive director, Peggy Youngblood as secretary and Tammy Ristow as treasurer.
