Wednesday was the deadline for applications for an upcoming vacancy on the Mitchell School Board. Mitchell Schools Superintendent Joe Graves says five applications were submitted. Lacey Musick, Kevin Kenkel, Steve Sibson, Dana Price, and Mark Bernard all applied for the seat. The school board has the option of making a selection based on the applications or requesting interviews with all of the applicants before choosing. The seat is being vacated by Rick Johnson, who suffered a stroke last December.
He died in Sioux Falls under hospice care on Friday.
A student opened fire at his Washington state high school on Friday, killing one person, and wounding at least four others.
