Dexter Smith dropped the gavel for the first time to open Tuesday’s Knox County School Board meeting.
He told the sparse crowd, “I appreciate serving on this school board. I thank these fine board members for voting me chairman.”
After the pledge of allegiance and prior to the start of the meeting, Kelly Sprinkles, Superintendent, introduced Dalton Smith, a senior from Lynn Camp High School.
“Dalton Smith is going to be our first non-voting student board member. We hope to get the ‘student perspective’ concerning what we do as a school system. Each month we hope to have a new student from a different school.”
