Battle Ground schools director stepping down

By , Columbian staff writer

Battle Ground Public Schools board director Rob Henrikson will be resigning effective Feb. 28. The district is seeking candidates to fill Henrikson’s spot serving District 2, which represents much of the eastern side of the school district.

Henrikson was appointed to the role in March 2019 and reelected in November 2019. In his time on the board, Henrikson served on a handful of different committees and also served on the board of the Battle Ground Education Foundation.

“Rob has positively affected thousands of staff members and students during his tenure through his thoughtful decision-making and commitment to what’s best for those whom he represents,” said Battle Ground Superintendent Denny Waters. “We are grateful for his service.”

Candidates interested in the vacant position must live and be registered to vote within District 2 boundaries. Applications should be sent to Sandy U’Ren at uren.sandy@battlegroundps.org and are due by Feb. 10. For more information on what’s required for the application, visit the district’s website at https://www.battlegroundps.org/bgps-board-of-directors-seeks-applicants-for-open-position/.
