 The LaRue County School Board convened April 1 in a special called meeting to discuss the weekend arrest of Superintendent Sam Sanders.

Sanders was charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol and speeding by Hodgenville City Police. He was driving a school-owned vehicle.

He will be arraigned April 9 in LaRue District Court.

Four board members – Joanna Hinton, Linda Pearman, Price Smith and Michael Hornback - met at Central Office, in the cafeteria of the former Hodgenville Elementary School. They went into a closed session in another area of the building to discuss personnel.

Sanders did not attend.

About 50 people – including TV crews – waited about 90 minutes for the board to emerge. Disappointment was expressed by the audience – some of it loudly – when Chairman Hornback read a brief statement that no action was being taken. He said another meeting would be held when all board members are present. Dawn Conner was on vacation.

Several people asked to speak but the meeting was adjourned.
