For sale: Jenkins band uniforms – from 1971

It may have seemed like “Back to the Future” as an ultra-modern school board meeting for the Jenkins Schools Board of Education included a motion to declare Jenkins band uniforms from 1971 as surplus and advertise them for bids.

Jenkins Superintendent Mike Genton told the board about the uniforms via the computer app “Microsoft Teams” during the Jenkins Board of Education’s first-ever virtual board meeting on March 24. The meeting was relatively short and only covered necessary agenda items in order to keep board members from unnecessary contact during the COVID-19 quarantine.

Genton told the board that Band Director Jenny Collins had come across the old uniforms after the recent renovations to the school, and asked that they be declared surplus. The board also voted to declare an indeterminate number of I-Mac computers surplus. Technology Director Damian Johnson will let Genton know how many I-Macs are fit for sale after he is able to examine them.
