The Homewood-Flossmoor High School District 233 board swore in new member Tim Wenckus during their Sept. 17 meeting.
Wenckus, a technical manager at Rexam Beverage Can in Chicago, holds a master's degree in chemistry from DePaul University, reports the Northwest Indiana Times. He currently has two girls enrolled in H-F High School and another on the way. In addition to his professional work, Wenckus is also very active in coaching local girls softball.
"Tim’s critical-thinking skills and ability to work collaboratively will be a true asset as he assumes this important role for our community," District 233 Supt. Dr. Von Mansfield said in a NWI Times report. "As a Viking parent, he understands the importance of maintaining our tradition of academic excellence, along with innovative programming, to help students reach their full potential."
Wenckus' addition to the board comes after the resignation of 6-year board member Andrew Lindstrom.
