On Jan. 15, Maple Valley resident Michael Feuerborn formally resigned from his position on the WTBOA board of directors
, citing changes in his personal life which would not allow him to remain as active as he deems important to the position.
Feuerborn had spearheaded the three highly successful horsemen's stimulus and silent auctions and raffles held in conjunction with the annual awards banquet among his many contributions.
At the WTBOA board meeting held on January 17, Rosalia DiPietro was selected to serve the remaining year in Feuerborn's three-year term.
At the same meeting, longtime industry and former board director Claudia Atwell Canouse joins five others as a trustee emeritus.
