Miller signs to wrestle for Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska
Darrin Miller recently signed a National Letter of Intent to wrestle for Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska. Concordia is part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Miller was a three-time state placer for Royal High School and amassed a record of 124-23. Miller placed 4th as a senior, 3rd as a junior, and 5th as a sophomore. He was a three-time league champion and a three-time regional champion for the Knights.
"Darrin is an outstanding athlete," Coach Pat Mitchell said of Miller. "He was a football player and was a two-time letterwinner in football and was a wrestling ambassador to Japan. He's an outstanding wrestler; his dad has coached him well. Darrin understands what's expected and how to conduct himself. He's a good student and I think he'll be a good leader for Concordia."
Miller, who is planning to study Business Management, said of choosing Concordia, "They have a good wrestling program and I really liked the positive environment."

Royal School District Board of Directors Update
April 27, 2016
The Board has asked its insurer, Clear Risk Solutions, to investigate the possible misuse of District resources by Superintendent Rose Search. Clear Risk Solutions has advised, in order to protect the integrity of the investigation, that Ms. Search be on paid administrative leave while they conduct the investigation. While Ms. Search is on leave, the Board has designated David Andra as acting Superintendent. Administrative leave is not a disciplinary action and the Board takes this action only to assure that the rights of all employees, including Ms. Search, are protected. Next steps are dependent on the results of the investigation. To further protect the integrity of the investigation the Board and individual members will not be commenting further.
