There will be a new face on the Community School Corporation of Southern Hancock County school board by the end of the month.
The board recently appointed Laura Haeberle to fill the void left by Bill Niemier, who resigned to take a position on the New Palestine Town Council, which he was elected to last November. She will serve the remaining one year of Niemier’s term.
A resident of the district for 16 years, Haeberle is no stranger to the district, having served as the media center assistant at New Palestine Elementary School and as a substitute teacher. In addition, her children are enrolled at New Palestine High School.
Haeberle will be sworn in at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 13.
The district also considered Suzanne Cannon, Jon Hooker and Ethan Maple.
