  • Cahill, Reed bid farewell to board

    Life can be like a novel with chapters: the beginning, the middle and the end. In a sense, when a chapter in life ends, a new one begins. For two former Grant County Board members Billie Cahill and Diane Reed, a new chapter begins after finishing a combined 18 years on the board.
    Cahill had been on the Grant County Board of Education for 14 years and knew that the time was right to step down.
