LANSING, Ill. (August 27, 2019) – “As a member of this Board of Education, I’ve asked a lot of questions,” said District 215 Board President Michael Bolz at the August 27 meeting. “And I’ve learned over the last eight and a half years that the most common answer to every question I’ve ever asked is, ‘Ask Julie.’” Bolz went on to describe Julie Venem as a “wealth of institutional knowledge” and to thank her for her service to the district, to the community, and to students and their families throughout the years, “You will be sorely missed,” said Bolz.
