Anonymous tennis fans donate money for new bleachers

Cloquet School Board members accepted an anonymous donation from “Fans of Cloquet Tennis” during Monday’s meeting. The donation of nearly $21,000 is to be used to buy bleachers for the new high school tennis courts. The board also accepted 24 Cloquet Educational grants totalling $28,400.

Board members also approved a new three-year contract for schools superintendent Michael Cary, including a raise of 4.61 percent (equal to the Education Minnesota union increases), to bring his salary to just over $166,000 next school year. The board will hold a mid-year evaluation of Cary in a closed session at the end of the Feb. 12 meeting.
