Sessions hopes to attract students to the university, which is building new residents halls to house 5,000 students. Stone expressed an interest in working with Delaware State to develop projects to motivate students to continue education. The following coaches were approved for spring sports: David Hearn - varsity baseball head coach, Christy Parsons - varsity softball head coach, Rick Evans - varsity girls soccer, David Parsons - varsity softball assistant, Mark Quillan - girls soccer assistant, Linda Budd - girls soccer varsity assistant. The board approved the Student Leadership Assistance Policy and the use of the school for the Delmar Alumni Association on Jan. 5. The school board election will be held on Saturday, May 8. The referendum date is set for Feb. 7. Principal Mark Holodick reported that the Delmar Booster Club is asking for a special ticket purchase as an incentive to get more members to join the club and support sporting events.
