PR-B School Board recommends Bouchonville for vacant seat


The Pine River-Backus School Board took a big next step toward filling the vacancy on the board.

After introductions and a brief interview, six candidates were reduced to four by popular vote, and then again to just two candidates.

The board decided to narrow their candidates multiple times before a final vote because they recognized that some board members might know the candidates personally.
