The Johnson County School District One Board of Trustees had their December meeting Monday night and welcomed two of the three new board members and elected officers for the coming year.
New board members Greg Haas and Grace Gosar were sworn into their positions but the third new member, Linda McNeill-Clark, was out due to health reasons. She will be sworn at a future meeting.
The new board selected officers for 2013, electing to keep Rich Hall as Chairman, Marcy Schuler as Vice-Chairman, Kathy Smith as Treasurer and Deb Hepp as Clerk.
The board also needed to fill the empty seat created when Mark Gordon accepted the Wyoming State Treasurer position earlier this fall.
The board received five letters of interest from the public and voted in George Mathes as the final new board member. Mathes accepted the position and will fulfill the final two years of Gordon's seat before it comes up for election again in 2014.
