Introducing your successor via Zoom

ASHLEY SLOBODA | The Journal Gazette

Details in the East Allen County Schools board room didn't escape member Bob Nelson's notice Tuesday -- even while participating via Zoom.

Nelson, who was denied a third term in the Nov. 3 election, spotted his District 5R successor on his screen. At least he was confident he did.

"I'm not very good at recognizing people from the back, but I think Jenny Blackburn may be there," Nelson said over Zoom to his colleagues participating in person.

A camera was set up in the room so those at home could watch the meeting online, a setup the board has regularly used during the pandemic.

"I just wanted to introduce her to the board," Nelson said.

Blackburn turned and waved to the camera.

"Thanks, Bob," she said.
