New School Board Member Bill Lowe took the oath of office during the Nov. 8 special meeting of the Board. He was selected to fill a vacancy due to the resignation of Kim Bailey, who was appointed to the Missouri State Board of Education. At the time of her resignation, Bailey was serving as Board President. Since her departure, Vice President Paul Coffman had been serving as Interim President. After Lowe was sworn in, the Board reorganized and elected Ruth Johnson to serve as president; and Paul Coffman as vice president. Pam Steele continues as secretary; and Cynthia Byous continues as treasurer. Lowe was appointed to serve until the next School Board election in April 2019.
