HARLAN – Outgoing Harlan Community Schools Board of Education members Amy Rueschenberg and Jessica Anderson said it was a tough decision not to seek re-election to their board seats, but take comfort in their view that the district is headed in the right direction and good things are on the horizon.

Added Rueschenberg, “Harlan Community School District is known for its academic achievements and the opportunities it provides kids inside and outside of the classroom.
“The education our district provides will prepare our children for life after Harlan Community Schools.”
Rueschenberg and Anderson currently hold board leadership positions as president and vice-president, meaning come November after the annual election November 2 the board will elect new leaders of the board.

The two have been stalwart advocates for honesty, integrity, compassion and trustworthiness while joining fellow board members in dealing with difficult situations during their tenure.
