School board vacancies filled
The District 777 Board of Education filled the two vacant seats on the school board during a regularly-scheduled meeting last Monday night. The board has had three people resign from the school board in the last few months, including Jeff Guest, Shelly Vergin, and Stan Claussen.
Guest’s seat has already been filled by Andy Abner, who was appointed to serve the next year of his term, while the board was considering what to do with the remaining year of Vergin’s and Claussen’s terms.
Marlene Molden and Jodi DeJong-Hughes were appointed to fill the two open board seats. The appointments are for one year each. Since both seats expire December of 2014, both will be up for election in November of 2014.
