Mayor eyes school board appointees

MERIDIAN —     New candidates for the city school district's school board will be brought to the table next month.

    City school board members are appointed by the mayor and confirmed by the council, unlike county board members, who are elected.

    "We are going to be presenting that at the next city council meeting in April," Mayor Percy Bland said on Tuesday. "We are looking at two people."

    One post is vacant and would have expired in May; another post is also due to expire in May.

    Dr. Judith Miller, whose term would have expired in May, resigned. Her post is unfilled.

    Bland removed Michael Vanveckhoven in 2013 and replaced him with Evanda Lyons. Vanveckhoven had been appointed in August, 2012. That term is set to expire in May.

    Other board members are:

    Dwayne Maust, appointed in May, 2012. His term expires in May, 2017;

    Marvis Killingsworth, appointed in March, 2011. His term expires in May, 2016;

    Teresa Hodges, appointed in March, 2010. Her term expires in May, 2015.
