The Clinton Board of Education met virtually Tuesday evening to discuss new business.
District Superintendent Dr. Stephen Grimm began the meeting highlighting a donation of gift baskets from the Clinton Varsity Girls Hockey team to St. Luke's Hospital despite the team's season not starting or even guaranteed to be happening.
Grimm celebrated the Warriors receiving their state championship rings as well as providing outreach to the community.
Mary Hosey-Pardi is leaving the district after 20 years of service. Grimm presented her with a plaque commemorating and appreciating her two decades of service to the district.
CCS wishes Hosey-Pardi the best of luck in her future, thanking her for her kind heart and professional ability. CCS High School Principal Dr. Matt Lee echoed Grimm's comments.

Grimm then went through a compare and contrast discussion, giving examples of how student life has changed and stayed the same in some areas from last year to now with the impact of the pandemic.
