INDIANAPOLIS — The SBE Board of Directors has appointed Dale Scherbring, CPBE, to serve as as a trustee of the Ennes Educational Foundation Trust.

Scherbring takes over for Fred Baumgartner, CPBE, CBNT, who resigned April 9 after serving as a trustee for 25 years.

SBE President Jim Leifer, CPBE, said Scherbring’s “30 years of broadcast engineering and SBE membership… will be invaluable in helping the Trust achieve its educational mission.”

Trustees are responsible for the operation of the Ennes Educational Foundation Trust. The two other current trustees are Douglas W. Garlinger, CPBE, CBNT, of Fishers, Ind.; and Tony Peterle, CPBE, of Miami.
