Besse resigns from East Grand Board of Education

The East Grand School District (EGSD) Board of Education is one member short following the recent resignation of Board member Chip Besse.

Besse resigned from his position on the Board of Education on Jan. 4 citing “professional and personal” reasons, according to East Grand Superintendent Jody Mimmack, Ph.D. Besse was initially appointed to the Board of Education in 2011 and has served since that time, serving as Board Treasurer for a period.

“We commend him for his service,” said Mimmack during the recent EGSD Board of Education meeting held on Jan. 5. “We will get him to a meeting at some future date so we can celebrate him,” she added. Besse was unavailable for comment on this story as of press time.

The Board of Education is currently seeking another community member to fill Besse’s seat on the board. Besse represented District Number 4 within the EGSD, a stretch of land encompassing the area from Tabernash to Berthoud Pass on the east side of US Highway 40. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the East Grand Board of Education are encouraged to submit a letter of interest and a resume to the board by Jan. 28. To qualify for the position a person must be a full time resident of District 4.
