ARCHBOLD - The Archbold Area Board of Education has selected Tony Warncke to fill the open position on the board.
Mr. Warncke was unanimously appointed at a board meeting Friday. He will serve through Dec. 31, 2009 and occupy the seat vacated by David Yoder.
Mr. Yoder stepped down Nov. 17, citing family commitments.
Mr. Warncke, 40, a father of three children who attend Archbold schools, is director of product development for Sauder Manufacturing Co. He waged an unsuccessful bid for school board in 2005.
"We're thrilled to have him aboard," Superintendent Dave Deskins said. "Hopefully, we'll get him up to speed pretty quickly."
