Two Lindbergh Board of Education members were sworn in last week, and the school board elected officers for 2006-2007.

Janine Fabick and incumbent board Vice President Ken Fey were the top vote-getters in the April 4 election and were sworn in April 11 by board President Mark Rudoff.

Fabick received 4,749 votes — 38.03 percent — and Fey garnered 3,672 votes — 29.41 percent. Also running were Bill Klostermann, who received 2,114 votes — 16.93 percent — and Rebecca Soeder, who garnered 1,952 votes — 15.63 percent.

The Board of Education also adopted a resolution honoring all four candidates. The resolution noted that their “willingness to serve on the school board is an ex-pression of the highest interest in the educational welfare of Lindbergh’s youth.”

The resolution concluded by stating, “… The Lindbergh Board of Education commends these candidates for their interest in the Lindbergh School District and the education of our students, and for their willingness to voluntarily serve the people of the Lindbergh community.”

The Board of Education also adopted a resolution honoring Barry Cooper, who did not seek election April 4.

Cooper had served two three-year terms on the school board and was appointed last May to serve the unexpired term of Drew Walk, who resigned. During his tenure on the board, Cooper had served as vice president, secretary and treasurer.

The resolution noted that Cooper “will be remembered for the long-term betterment of the district and his significant contributions to the Board of Education and to the students, staff and families in the Lindbergh School District.”

The resolution concluded by stating, “… The Lindbergh Board of Education extends its sincere thanks to Mr. Barry Cooper for his dedication to youth and education, and for the sacrifices he made to the Lindbergh School District while serving on the Board of Education these past seven years.”

Officers for the board will remain unchanged as Rudoff will serve as president, Fey will serve as vice president, Vic Lenz will serve as secretary and Katie Wesselschmidt will serve as treasurer.
