Braden Werner and Dianna Brodine began their term on this day. "We talk a lot about this board, the diversity of the board is one of its strengths," said Willson. "No matter what beliefs and ideas we have, we always do what's best for kids. I see that continuing with our new board members and I appreciate the diversity you will bring."
