Regional Superintendent of Schools Julie Wollerman reported the Regional Board of School Trustees for Bond, Christian, Effingham, Fayette, and Montgomery Counties was organized Monday, August 3.
A public act, passed in 2012, directed Christian and Montgomery Counties to consolidate with Regional Office of Education #3 and resulted in a merger of the Regional Board of School Trustees for the counties. All sitting members’ terms were extended until August 3, at which time, during a reorganization meeting, seven people were chosen by lots to represent the five counties on the new seven-seat board.
Board members include Abby Bayles – Fayette County, Don Farrimond – Christian County, Eugene Logue – Effingham County, Jimmie Rice – Bond County, Don Scott – Christian County, JD Vieregge – Fayette County, and Donna Yeske – Montgomery County.
These new members will serve until the general election in 2017.
Jimmie Rice was chosen Board Chairman.
