Announcement is made that B. R. Weimer, principal of Mifflintown schools, has tendered his resignation to the School Board effective July 1, 1921 when his term and present contract expire.
It is understood that Mr. Weimer has accepted the professorship at the head of the Department of Biology at Bethany College, Bethany, W. Va. At an increase in salary. He will assume his duties on September 1.
Prof. Weimer came here nearly three years ago when the public schools of Mifflintown were in a chaotic condition due to the flu epidemic. With business ability rarely evidenced in a man so young, he took charge and soon had the schools in a flourishing condition. It is principally through his efforts that the twin city band was organized, of which he still retains the leadership. There are few young men more capable or energetic man Mr. Weimer, and many friends will express regret at his departure.
