Final passage also came on
providing tax exemptions, at
the request of the city of Sa-
lem, for multiple-unit hous-
ing in Salem. Negative votes
came from Kyllo and director
Jesse Lippold, both of whom
said the money would not go
toward education. Vice chair-
person Sheronne Blasi, pre-
siding in Goss’s absence, said
it was a matter of addressing
urban blight and an opportu-
nity for the district to support
livable spaces.
The board granted a per-
manent easement for the
Keizer Water District to use
a water well and a pump sta-
tion on the McNary High
School grounds for the city’s
drinking water supply.
Also approved for fi nal ac-
tion were support of a con-
tinuum of care to provide
federal funds for the home-
less, and the results of the re-
cent School Board election.
Director Marty Heyen was
re-elected from Zone 2, Satya
Chandragiri won the Zone 4
seat for which Green did not
seek re-election, and Dan-
ielle Bethell defeated Lee’s
re-election bid in the Keizer
area’s Zone 6.
The board accepted grants
of $166,816 from the U.S.
Department of Education
for various needs of Amer-
ican Indian/Alaskan Native
students, $30,000 from the
Oregon Community Foun-
dation for similar purposes,
and $3,100 from the Siletz
Tribal Charitable Contribu-
tion Fund for a Pow Wow
presentation for selected
fourth-grade classes.

approved by the board, the
following involve the Mc-
Nary attendance area:

The board designated June
as LGBTQ Pride Month. It
was the fi rst time a proclama-
tion of its kind was passed in
SKPS. Members of the Mc-
Nary High Gay-Straight Al-
liance and the Salem Chapter
of PFLAG were on hand to
accept the proclamation.
In the Spotlight on Suc-
cess portion of the meeting,
Mary Lou Boderman, coor-
dinator of district music and
drama school education, rec-
ognized the McNary band
for winning second place in
state competition.

Hill served with Charlie
Company in Adhamiya, Iraq.
At the time, the area was heavy
with insurgents, and the lo-
cals were paying a steep price.
Caught in the middle of war-
ring factions, some 10 to 20
villagers a day were reportedly
being killed as Sunni and Shiite
waged war against each other.
Hill’s sense of duty took him
to Iraq after graduating from
the Oregon National Guard
