HOWARD — The July meeting of the East Knox local schools board of education Thursday evening opened up many discussions and future actions for the board.

Seven-year district residents Gary and Linda Schworm addressed the board with their issues concerning the current Junior/Senior High School building.

“I think it’s time for us to seriously think about building a new High School building,” Gary said while addressing the board. “I don’t know exactly how old that building is, if I had to guess it was built in the 1940s. It’s got to be very inefficient to heat and cool that building.”
