Committee to study possible restructuring of Lyman School

Posted by Lucy

The Lyman School Board appointed a committee of administrative and staff members to study the feasibility of restructuring the Lyman School system to better serve the educational needs of the students in the district.

A public committee meeting will be held Tuesday, September 30th at the school in Presho.

"There are a lot of issues to consider, most importantly what is the best for the students academically," said superintendent Lynn Vlasman.

Public input is welcome said Mr. Vlasman.

"We may have to limit the time people can speak to 3 or 4 minutes," said Vlasman. "There are a host of factors to consider."

The Lyman Middle School was established at Kennebec following the consolidation of Lyman Schools, and after the first year of East and West Lyman. All the towns in the school district kept their elementary schools for a period of time after consolidation, but eventually the Vivian elementary moved to Presho, and in the early 1990s Reliance students moved to Kennebec elementary.

The restructuring committee will consider whether it would be feasible to move all the elementary students to the Kennebec site and move the middle school to Presho. 1st

Lutherans observe 100 years in Presho

Posted by Lucy

The Presho American Lutheran Church held a centennial celebration Sunday, September 14 with a program and picnic dinner following a joint worship service with the Lyman Lutheran parishes that packed the pews of the church.

Janet Rabern served as emcee for the program that featured stories compiled from church history and records starting in 1890 when the Medicine Valley United Synod church was established at the Earling settlement about three miles west of present day Kennebec.

There were two different Norwegian synods serving the people of Lyman County from as early as 1890 up until the merger between the United Synod and the Norwegian Synod in 1914.

The Norwegian Lutherans built their first church in Presho in 1908, and later built the present day church in 1951. A ground level addition was added to the church in 1972.

Descendants of some of the original members of the Lutheran Church participated in the program including, Nelson Brakke, Quint Garnos, Jerry Busch, Debbie Millard, Daryl Walters, Dean Brakke, Pete Swinson, and Paul Olson. Others assisting were Kym Lebeda, Jody Reuman, Sarah Rusche, and Pastor Arlyn Rusche.

Other churches that merged in addition to Medicine Valley United Synod, include; the White River United Synod, Medicine Creek Norwegian Synod, Hilmoe Norwegian Synod, Vivian Norwegian Synod, and Kennebec Lutheran.
