The Wapakoneta City Schools Board of Education approved the supplemental contracts of three coaches and several advisers, as well as the employment of one regular staff member and one substitute teacher at a regular board meeting Tuesday night.

Pending completion of all educational requirements and verification of documentation, Kathleen Pellington will be hired as the new music teacher at Wapakoneta High School.

The supplemental contract for flag corps adviser Kim Mertz was approved, as well as the contracts for several other school activity advisers for clubs such as quiz bowl, art club, drama, student senate and yearbook, among others.
