Students of the Month

Tom Noack touched many lives during his 30-year tenure as a science teacher at Sibley East.
Since he passed away in December 2014, the school has received a number of donations in his memory, along with a number of inquiries about the possibility of establishing a memorial fund.
Junior High Principal Steve Harter informed the school board that a group is looking into the possibility of forming a Tom Noack Memorial fund.
There was an overwhelming response of former students and community members who are interested in helping start the fund, Harter said.
