Neligh-Oakdale teacher Cindy Hild was honored for her years of service during the FCCLA/FBLA banquet Tuesday. Her successor was also announced.
Principal George Loofe presented Hild with a plaque, recognizing her for 35 years of teaching family and consumer sciences at Neligh-Oakdale.
Hild was at Neligh-Oakdale when it became one of the first 10 charter schools that started the FCCLA program. Since that time, she has had numerous students become state and national medalists in the STAR competition, and hold state and national offices.
Hild also introduced the new FCS teacher, Kimberly Scarborough of Bartlett. Scarborough's hiring is pending board of education approval.
Scarborough is currently a FCS teacher at Spalding High School and is the sponsor for its FCCLA program. She has taught there since 1994. Scarborough graduated from Chadron State College with a bachelor of science degree in family and consumer sciences and business education.
