D. Robin Beck elected vice-president of the board of directors of the regional school unit 73


LIVERMORE – The Board of Directors of Regional School Unit 73 accepted the resignation Thursday night of Jay’s Vice President Michael Morrell and elected D. Robin Beck to succeed him.

Superintendent Scott Albert thanked Morrell for his work and dedication, noting that they had worked together for over a decade.

“He will be sorely missed,” said Albert.

A community member also thanked Morrell for his service to the district, which includes the four Spruce Mountain schools.

“Mike really voted based on what he thought was best for the district,” he said.

“I will miss Mike,” President Robert Staples said. “I felt he was the one who should have been president. He’s young enough to be my son, but he’s been my mentor. We will miss him. I wish him the best. “

RSU 73 officials said they accepted Morrell’s resignation with regret and gratitude.

“I would like to say ‘no’,” Staples said before voting to accept Morrell’s resignation.

No reason was given during or after the meeting for Morrell’s decision to resign.

According to his Facebook page, Morrell is the technology integrator of regional school unit 17 in the south of Paris. The district’s website lists him as a teacher at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School, also in southern Paris.

Beck, who became manager in July, is from Livermore Falls, where she runs Rockin ‘Sheep Farm. She is also a registered nurse.

The directors of RSU 73 also accepted the resignations of Steven Sweet, the primary school physical education teacher; Diane Berry, special education teacher in elementary school; and Tammy Verreault, director of special services for the district.

In other areas, the board voted to hire another education technician and discussed staff shortages.

“We are critically short of cafeteria workers, guards and bus drivers,” Albert said.
