Proper was first elected to the Board of Trustees in November 2015. He served on the curriculum and instruction, and the finance committee. He was also a member on the board of RD Anderson Applied Technology Center.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Proper family. Jeff was an incredible man that served the students of the D5 community through the school board and youth sports. His legacy of selfless service will not be forgotten. 🙏🏻
