CALL TO ORDER
At the beginning of this evening's meeting, the Board welcomed Mr. Tim Dean as a new member of the Board. Mr. Dean has been sworn-in by the Kingsport Board of Mayor and Aldermen to complete the term of long-time Board member Mrs. Carrie Upshaw, who recently passed away after a lengthy illness.
- Mr. Dean has previously served on the KCS Board of Education from 2001-2005. His current service on the Board fills the position that will be on the ballot in the May 2021 Kingsport municipal election.
The Pledge of Allegiance was led this evening by Andy True, Assistant Superintendent - Administration.
Following the Pledge, the Board made a determination that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was necessary to hold tonight's meeting electronically to protect the health, safety, and welfare of participants and observers. By a roll-call response, the Board voted 4-1 that an electronic meeting was necessary.
