Northwest Iowa — This Tuesday, September 12th is the day for school board elections. There are board members at each area school whose terms will be expiring this fall. For example:

Two members of Sheldon School Board have terms that will expire this fall. They are At-Large member Randy Merley, and District 1 member Susan Rensink. Rensink is running, but Merley did not file papers for his chair. Running unopposed for that position is Lori Richards.

In the Boyden-Hull School District, the District 1 position held by Mark Nilles, the District 3 position held by Gina Woelber, and the District 2 position held by Laura Woelber are all up for election, and all three are running for re-election, unopposed.

At MOC-Floyd Valley, the school board terms held by District 3 Director Gerald Van Roekel and District 5 Director Christine Koerselman are expiring. Koerselman is running unopposed for re-election, while Hermencgildo Reyes Rodriguez is running unopposed for Van Roekel’s seat.

The Director-At-Large seats held by Al Vermeer, Terry Van Maanen, and Steve Van Den Top in the Rock Valley Community School District are up for election. Van Maanen and Van Den Top are running. Shelli Rens is running unopposed for Vermeer’s seat.

In the Sioux Center district, three at-large positions are up for election. They are those of Jerod Work, Lori Zomermaand, and Dale Kraayenbrink. Work is running for re-election, but Zomermaand and Kraayenbrink did not file papers. Besides Work, running for the at-large positions are LoriAnne Andersen, Nathan Bullock, and Joshua Tacke. Three of the four will receive a post on the school board.

At West Sioux, the District 1 chair, held by Russ Coons, the District 2 chair, held by Gary Witt; the District 4 chair, held by Tom Sellers, and the at-large chair held by Ken Koch are up for election.
