LOWELL | Doug Ward has been elected president of the Tri-Creek School Board.

Ward appointed board members to a number of special committee and board positions.

Dumbsky will continue to serve on the Northwest Indiana Special Education Cooperative Board of Managers.

Timothy Cottingham will serve on the Vocational Agricultural Advisory Committee and the Lowell Redevelopment Commission.

Martinez will serve as legislative liaison and policy liaison.

Stanton will be the board's representative on the Coordinated School Health Advisory Council.

The board also approved the hiring of two Lowell Middle School teachers.

Jeff Kacena will replace Jennifer Del Real as a science teacher. Valerie Bernecker will teach English/language arts during a maternity leave of absence.
