The United 4 Youth Board met for their regular monthly meeting Tuesday, Sept. 11, at the USD 113 Board Office in Sabetha. Board members present were Heather Stewart, Krista Stallbaumer, Brianna Gruber, Brad Lippert, Adam Reel, Jason Drahota, Jill Mady and Scott Anson. Also present was executive director Sarah Renyer.
The board reviewed and approved the August meeting minutes with one correction noted.
Stewart gave the treasurer’s report. She said that some workbooks for Too Good For Drugs were ordered for Centralia. She also said that $588.22 was deposited into the board account from the grant account for Alcohol EDU.
Stewart gave the grant coordinator’s report. She told the board the quarterly report had been submitted to the State to report what we have accomplished in the past quarter. She also said that times were being established through email about when to meet for workgroup sessions.
Renyer gave the director’s report. Renyer told board she has been in the local schools over the last month meeting with different people. She met with superintendents to get Memorandums of Understanding signed and has those ready to give to Stallbaumer for signature.
The first stage of Alcohol EDU will be starting Sept. 27. Former board member Jennifer Haynes is doing tobacco 101 with the Alcohol EDU. Renyer is working with her on that.
Renyer also explained to the board that the Resist Grant is new tobacco grant that came out two weeks ago. This is a $400 grant to two Nemaha County schools – Sabetha and Nemaha Central. The schools will be required to do one community event.
Renyer also told the board that speaker Kevin Hines would be speaking on Monday, Sept. 17, but Nemaha Central has no school that day so Sabetha will be present.
Renyer also said she will be sharing a summary of the monthly SADD chapter reports with the board each month.
The board decided to table the board position turnover until January 2019.
The Junior High Dance is Sept. 15 from 8 to 10 p.m.
Stewart explained Dropbox to the board and mentioned she would send out a how to video on using Dropbox.
Renyer discussed the SADD membership fee that is being charged this year for chapters that register nationally. She explained that SADD is going to require a $5 membership fee per member this year. Lippert suggested asking the Nemaha County commissioners to cover these membership fees. Renyer said she would schedule a time for that meeting, and the board discussed the possibility of paying for the registration fees. Renyer said she will discuss with SADD sponsors the benefits/costs of being a registered SADD member. The discussion was tabled until the next meeting.
