    Message to the Community;

    It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of one of our school board members, Mr. Mike Bateman.

    As some of you were aware, Mike had been dealing with some health issues, but his passing was sudden and unexpected.

    Mike has been a long-time community member in Matlock. He was a graduate of MMK, a former employee of the district, Head Girls Basketball Coach, and a School Board Member since 2019. For the past 3 years, Mike had served as the President of the Board of Directors for the Mary M. Knight School District.

    Mike was always a champion of the Mary M. Knight School District and the community of Matlock. He consistently made decisions as a board member with the students' needs at the forefront. Mike was approachable to anyone in the community and always willing to help at any time.

    His service and dedication to the Mary M. Knight School District will be missed by myself, the other board members, and the entire district.
