WATERTOWN, S.D.–The Watertown School Board holds a special meeting this (Wednesday) morning with just one item on the agenda, but it’s an important one.

They’ll meet to vote on who’ll get a contract offer to become the next president of Lake Area Technical College (LATC).

Mike Cartney announced this past summer that he’s retiring at the end of the calendar year.

Sixteen people applied to replace him, and interviews with three finalists were held in executive session in Watertown earlier this month.

The school board meets at 11:30 this (Wednesday) morning in the High School Conference Room to vote on who’ll get the contract offer to lead LATC.
