    Mike Abell, 41, of Springfield has been an educator for 19 years, and becoming a principal has always been one of his aspirations.

    He will fulfill that dream Monday, Aug. 26, which will be his first day at Marion County High School as its new principal.

    “I’m so grateful to have the opportunity,” Abell said after the SBDM council unanimously hired him for the position on Aug. 21. “As a principal, you have such an opportunity to influence more students on a larger scale.”

  • School tax could go up

    Thursday, Aug. 29, a public tax hearing will be held at the Marion County Board of Education office and it’s likely the board will approve a 4 percent increase to the current tax rate.
    Last year, former Superintendent Dr. Chuck Hamilton recommended and the board voted to increase the real estate and personal property taxes by only 1.1 percent, while most other surrounding school boards voted to increase the rate by the maximum percentage, which is 4 percent. Hamilton said he was trying to be sensitive to local families in the community.
