Dennis Olsen appointed to Cheboygan Area Schools Board of Education | #Education

CHEBOYGAN — Dennis Olsen is the newest member of the Cheboygan Area Schools Board of Education.

Olsen was the only person to apply to fill the open spot on the board, a vacancy created with the resignation of Dr. John Palmer, who served several terms. Olsen will fill the position on the board through the general election in November, when someone will be elected to fill the remainder of Palmer’s term, expiring in 2026.

“I have lived in Cheboygan 20 years,” said Olsen. “I want to be on the school board to make a difference, to help children, to see kind of how the back of the workings of the school system work.”

Olsen said he doesn’t really know anything about how the school system works, but he hears a lot about what is happening in the district and he wants to learn more. He wants to help figure out what is working with the district, what is not working, how things are being introduced to the students enrolled there and maybe have a voice in it all.
