Hawk Talk

Kelly Krei and Matt Gatens have a lot of things in common.
They both grew up in Iowa City and were Hawkeye fans at a young age.
They went to junior high and high school together. They excelled in two sports and they helped lead City High to state championships in basketball… in the same year.
“It is kind of weird that we both happened to win our senior year,” said Kelly. “It was a great thing for City High and we had some great teammates helping us a lot.”
While Matt was competing in basketball and golf, Kelly was running track and playing basketball.

By Alecia Brooks
Solon Economist
SOLON– The Iowa Association of School Boards (IASB) sent membership dues requests and a letter to school boards asking each district to name up to five goals that will be critical to school districts and taxpayers in preparation for the 2011-2012 school year.
The goals should be returned on a form, which has background information.
Helping to close the information is a sentence that reads, “The grassroots IASB legislative process involves all school districts in Iowa.”
