Last Thursday, the Conrad School Board held a special meeting regarding the Conrad High School Eligibility Policy.
Close to 30 community members gathered in the CHS Auditorium to express their support or concerns for the year old policy.
After the meeting was called to order, CHS Principal Ken Larson spoke to the audience about the policy and how it came to be.
Larson explained that a large share of the students at CHS were on the DFI list, which tallies students with a letter grade of D, F or Incomplete for at least one class.

Conrad does know how to throw a party!
Tuesday night was the second go-around for National Night Out (NNO) and well over 300 people came out to the Conrad Lions Swimming Pool Park for the event.
Building off of last year’s party, this one was even better and will be a spring board for future NNOs.
This is a national event put on by communities taking place on the first Tuesday in August from coast-to-coast.
Cheryl Sawyer, EMT-B was recently recognized by the board of directors of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for achieving 20 years as a Nationally Registered EMT.
This distinction is an honor held by few EMTs. Sawyer serves with the Pondera County ambulance crew.
In order to maintain her status at NREMT, she completed, on a biennial basis, the most comprehensive recertification program for EMTs in America.
