Just days before the deadline, the Rossford Board of Education has selected a new board member.
Jackie Brown will be sworn in at the board s next regularly scheduled meeting at 5 p.m. July 16 at Rossford High School.
Board member Diane McKinney said the board unanimously chose to appoint Mrs. Brown to the vacant seat because she s involved in the community and involved with the schools, and has been for a long, long time.
The four school board members chose Mrs. Brown from a pool for four applicants to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of board President Mike McAlear, whose term is up at the end of the year. He resigned late last month for personal reasons and because of business commitments.
