HUNTINGDON (October 23) — Huntingdon Mayor and Council honored two of its own members during their meeting before retiring. They also honored the Huntingdon Special School District for being one of 14 students statewide to be honored as an Exemplary School District.
Council members Jeff Bailey and Melissa Powell were each presented a plaque for their exemplary service to the city and its citizens. Mayor Dale Kelley presented a plaque to Powell for 24 years of service and Bailey for 22 years of service.
Powell said it is a bittersweet moment because public service has been a big part of her life. She said she is proud of the town’s accomplishments. She also praised her fellow council members, who she said she has had the privilege to work with and better know.
On her decision not to seek reelection, Powell said it is time for the new members to bring new ideas.
Bailey praised the mayor, council members and the two city clerks- Martha Taylor and Kim Carter for their service. He said he has learned a lot during his tenure.
Pat Dillahunty, director of schools, Jonathan Kee, principal at Huntingdon High School, and Scott Carter, principal of Huntingdon Middle School, accepted the plaque honoring the school system from Mayor Dale Kelley. The plaque was the Pinnacle of Excellence Award, the town’s highest honor.
