WRIGHTSTOWN - On the same night the Wrightstown Community School Board was slated to pick a successor to Board President Tom Eggert - who moved from the district to a new home in Green Bay - another board member resigned.


Mike Van Eperen, who had been on the board for 12 years, was board president until Eggert was voted in as president in May.


At the board meeting on September 15, Van Eperen's resignation was accepted.

THE BRILLION NEWS has requested a copy of the resignation letter under the state's public records law.


On Thursday, September 16, the district web site is expected to post a notice calling for people interested in filling out Van Eperen's term of office apply for appointment.

The remaining school board members will make the choice.

At the September 15 meeting, the school board selected Maggie Boland to fill the seat vacated by Eggert's departure.


The board was also notified of structural problems at the elementary school which caused a portion of the project to be redesigned.
