On Thursday, Aug. 8, the community had the opportunity to welcome Niobrara County School District #1 (NCSD) administrative education team with a barbeque hosted by Parents Involved in Education (P.I.E.)

Jonathan Braack, NCSD Superintendent, expressed that the event was an opportunity to meet the community, exchange ideas, and open up a dialogue to promote a partnership with parental and community support.

Marty Wood has assumed the role as the Niobrara County High School Principal. Wood relates that he is familiar with this side of the state serving as principal at Torrington High School from 2003- 08 in Torrington, Wyo. and in Casper, Wyo., for the past five years. He said that he knew from an outside point of view that Lusk is a great community.

“When I had the opportunity to come here I thought it was going to be and will be a good fit for my skill set and experiences,” Wood said.

Aaron Carr, Lusk Elementary/Middle School (LEMS) Principal, is a Wyoming native with family roots in the Hulett, Wyo. area. According to Carr, 15-years of experience as principal in Wyoming and Nebraska schools has developed an appreciation for small towns and their family atmosphere. “The fact that people come together to tackle problems and it’s just a true, real community feel,” Carr stated.

Braack shared his belief that education at home is just as critical as education at school and the educational team needs to develop those relationships. The shared vision of the administrative group is that they want to become the premier district in Wyoming as well as at a national level as far as what they produce in the way of the student market.

Braack continued, the community, this district belongs to them. They’ve been here for decades. They have a lot of pride here. They’ve put a lot of trust in the three new people. They’ve willingly suspended their disbelief by anything to see how we do and we wanted to show them tonight and in the future that we’re just people like them. We care about their children. We have our own issues in life, but we want people to see that we want to be part of them. We are not above them. We are all here together. The people here in this town just want to be asked what they think is best.”
