VINCENT — Warren Local Schools Board of Education discussed the passing of Gary Loynachan and future scholarships for students.

Melcie Wells, treasurer, spoke during the finance committee presentation about future scholarships. She said Gary Loynachan, a former resident of Warren Local, passed away in March and left a substantial amount of money for future scholarships. Wells said Loynachan was a great advocate and supporter of the school district.

“And he decided to leave a substantial amount of money to the school district for the benefit of a scholarship, three different scholarships actually, for our students into the future, going way into the future,” she said. “So we want to end up by saying our appreciation for that tonight. And more to come on that for our seniors this year and for many years to come on how they can apply for the scholarships.”

She said they would have more information available about the scholarships on the school website in the near future.

Bob Allen, board member and district operations committee chair, gave a report about the district operations committee. Allen said they met on Monday to discuss transportation and preparing for the start of school. He said the committee’s next meeting will take place at Warren High School in rooms 1710/1711at 5 p.m. Sept. 19.

The board went into an executive session at 6:09 p.m. to discuss security arrangements, with no business to be conducted after the meeting.
