On November 2nd, the OESJ Board of Education appointed Shannon Smith as a School Board Trustee. Ms. Smith’s term began on November 2nd and will run until the next election scheduled for May 2023. Shannon is a respected community member and parent with proven leadership abilities. She is a great fit for the Board and will hit the ground running.
The Board is grateful to the four community members who expressed interest in stepping into the vacancy left by Shellie Walrath. All of the applicants would be an asset to our district if elected to serve a full term. The Board sincerely hopes that the 2023 annual election will garner the same, if not more, interest from remarkable candidates like those interviewed to fill this vacancy.
