School board approves hires, holds off on others
The Tonganoxie school board approved hires in the THS athletics department at Monday’s regular meeting.
The board approved Jon Snapp as THS assistant boys basketball coach and Jenna Meyer, THS color guard coach, by 7-0 votes.
Recommendations also had been made to the board to hire Ryan Scott and Brad Shelton as assistant THS baseball coaches. No action was taken for those positions.
Board member Leana Leslie said after the meeting the board wanted to ensure the opportunity for the positions was made available to all district staff. She also noted there was substantial time to make a decision, as the baseball season doesn’t start until the spring.
