Like others, superintendent surprised by Van Loenen's ouster
Like most who follow the trials and triumphs of the local school district, Superintendent Mary Bowen-Eggebraaten was surprised at the primary defeat of School Board President Barb Van Loenen. On the other hand, she's ready to work with whoever is elected to the board in April.
Van Loenen will complete her term on the board this month. A new president will be selected by the board after the new school board is seated in April.
