Pat Nelson, a member of the Milaca Board of Education the past seven years, has resigned.

Nelson is moving to St. Cloud.

She had been chair of the board the past few years.

The resignation was effective Jan. 25.

Jeff Larson was elected board chair at the Jan. 17 meeting at which Nelson’s resignation was accepted.

Judy Pearson was chosen vice chair, Aimee Struffert was elected clerk and Mark Herzing was elected treasurer.

The board also made its normal first-meeting-of-the-year appointments and designations.

Compensation for board members was left at $35 for meetings under four hours and $75 for meetings of four hours or more per day.

First National Bank will remain the local depository through Jan. 31, 2013, and the Mille Lacs County Times remains the official newspaper.
