Board Meeting
The Indian Lake Board of Education recognized several successful athletes and accepted a contract to begin the high school HVAC project during their regular March meeting.

Board members approved a contract with Ohio Technical Services, Inc. to abate a very small amount of asbestos that has been undisturbed at ILHS for decades.
Superintendent Dr. Rob Underwood explains, "This is precautionary. They will remove all the asbestos in the corridors of the 1968 part of the building. It's the first step of the larger HVAC project to extend air conditioning to all of the high school."
The abatement will begin as soon as school is out in late May. The entire HVAC project is expected to last all summer and be finished in the fall. Indian Lake is using remaining Covid-19 and other district money for the project.
Dr. Underwood and the board also recognized several winter athletes. Members of the ILHS Girls Bowling Team and their Coach Gina Rucker were at the meeting to celebrate their historic season and 6th place finish at the State Bowling Tournament. Members of the team are: Jalan Hughes, Jalan Martin, Kayleigh Zedlitz, Andi Miller, Samantha Johnson and Addison Castle.
In addition, the board also congratulated sophomore Owen Pummel, who represented Indian Lake at the OHSAA State Wrestling Tournament for a second time.
In addition, board members voted to enter into an agreement with Garmann/Miller to serve as the design professional for master planning and programming to study the feasibility of converting the current bus garage into a wrestling/athletic facility and constructing a new bus facility elsewhere on campus. Finally, Dr. Underwood reported that this year's Indian Lake Schools Distinguished Alumni Award recipients have been selected. They are local veteran Doyle Miller (posthumously) and All-American Girls Professional Baseball League player and pioneer in women's sports Jeneane "Lefty" Lesko Descombes. An induction ceremony is set for Wednesday, May 31st at 6 pm in the Indian Lake High School Auditorium.
The Indian Lake Board of Education will meet next on Monday, April 17th at 6:30 pm in the board office.
