This week in history from The Marysville Globe archives

• Lakewood School District Superintendent Kristine McDuffy officially began her new job July 2, but she started it without a desk. "I think they're going to put me back there," she said, pointing to the back of the district administrative building. The temporary lack of a writing surface probably won't hold back McDuffy, who was already discussing ideas for the next school year. At the top of McDuffy's list is the formation of a district advisory council, something that McDuffy had been discussing for several years with outgoing superintendent Wayne Robertson. The district council would "help construct a diverse perspective and inform people about how the district operates," said McDuffy. Currently, the district's four schools al have advisory councils. "The experience at the building level, which is a smaller model on a smaller scale, has been a real bonus," McDuffy said. She hopes the district advisory council will include parents, students, staff, members of the community and anyone else concerned with the way the district is run on a day-to-day basis. "If a business person asks, 'Why are we spending this?' these questions and different perspectives can add value. That's what I'm looking to do add value at the district level."
