Ryan Silvola/Beloit Daily News (From left): Board members Carl McMillan, Kristie Petitt and Dannie Shear were sworn in by clerk John Pelock on Monday. All board members also were re-elected to their officer seats.

TOWN OF BELOIT - Officers on the School District of Beloit Turner were all re-elected to their positions after swearing in new board member Carl McMillan and returning board members Kristie Petitt and Dannie Shear on Monday.

President John Turner bested clerk John Pelock for the presidential role in a vote of 6-1 using a secret ballot. Vice President Norm Jacobs nominated Turner, while Treasurer Dannie Shear nominated Pelock. Jacobs, Pelock and Shear all were unanimously re-elected to their officer seats.

McMillan, who was lived in the township for 52 years, said he would like to be involved with the growth of the district to shape opportunities for current and future students. He also would like to make sure students are prepared for non-college jobs while helping more students gain apprenticeships. He believes the district has been a good steward of district tax dollars.

"I'm excited to be a part of the Turner board of education as this community is a part of me and I want to help in any way, to keep it successful and growing. This board seat gives me that opportunity," McMillan said.

Board members say their primary focus will now be the implementation of the district's $28.485 million referendum plan, which will be used to replace the high school gym floor and bleachers, install secure entrances, make science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) additions to the middle/high school and build a new second-fifth grade elementary school.

Superintendent Dennis McCarthy said the board president will assign board members to committees during the May 13 regular board meeting.
