New Willmar School Board members look forward to serving


WILLMAR -- The Willmar School District will begin the new year with a major change in its School Board.

Three new board members will replace outgoing members who each had nine years of board experience.

Dan Croonquist, Linda Mathiasen and Nathan Streed were chosen from a seven-candidate field in the Nov. 2 election and will take office on Jan. 10. They will succeed Mike Carlson, Brad Schmidt and Dion Warne, who all are retiring from the board.
