School Board member resigns

In a letter read to fellow Northshore School Board members at the Aug. 22 meeting, Tim Barclay announced his plans to resign from the Northshore School Board.
   Barclay was originally appointed to the board May 12, 1998 to fill former director Jeff Schaub's place when he resigned. Barclay was officially elected to the board in November 1999. In early May, 2000, he requested and was granted a leave of absence
   Given increasing work responsibilities and his desire to be an involved parent raising three young children with his wife, Julie, Barclay no longer feels he can "fully meet the expectations of Board membership while also meeting other personal obligations.
