The public has a chance to get ahold of a piece of Warrior sports history.

The Corinth School District is offering for sale a number of old football and basketball lockers that are retired from use. Superintendent Lee Childress said the district believes some residents might find sentimental value in the red lockers, which are available in a variety of configurations.

Prices range from $20 to $35 depending on the style. Some are single stacks and some are paired.

The sale is cash-only; contact the district administrative office to arrange a purchase.

The district’s board of trustees approved the private sale last week to dispose of the property.

In other business:

Trustees approved the hires of Carlie Dodd, CES teacher; Donnita Ginn, CHS interventionist; Taylor Moak, CHS head tennis coach; Kristie Studdard, CHS assistant tennis coach; Andy Greening, CHS assistant football coach; Carey Walker, CHS substitute custodian; Maria Johnson, cafeteria worker; Cynthia A. Ward, peer review/federal program monitoring; and Kevin Absher, bus driver.

Resignations are Colin Harris, CHS tennis coach; Debra Rainer, CES teacher; and McKenzie Carson, CES teacher assistant.

The board approved Baylor Pratt’s Eagle Scout project to put a couple of benches at the CHS tennis courts.

A donation from Patriots That Love America will fund a flag pole to go at the administrative office on the lawn behind the sign.

The board gave approval to accept several incoming grants – a $20,000 Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Grant which will provide equipment for the career and technical education center which is being developed to open in the next school year; a $47,998.37 Perkins Reserve Grant that will also provide equipment and supplies for the CTE programs; a $3,000 Non-Traditional Participation Grant; and a $15,302 CTE ESSER Grant.

The board approved a new $25 fee for broken laptop covers.

The district will receive bids for window replacement at the old East Corinth Elementary campus on Friday and is looking to get that project approved by the board before the holiday break.
