Five Seek School Board Vacancy

Five residents of the east side of Crothersville have submitted letters of

interest to fill the unexpired term on the Crothersville School Board which

occurred when Kendra Smith resigned after moving from the school district.

Local school board president Robert Spicer said that the five had sent

letters of interest prior to the May 1 deadline.

Spicer declined to named the five applicants.

He said copies of each letter were forwarded to the school board members for

their review.

“Each board member is now sifting through the merits of each of the

applicants,” said Spicer. “I am hoping that we would be able to appoint the

succeeding candidate at next Monday’s (May 11) regular school board


State law provides that the remaining school board members appoint a

replacement whenever their is a vacancy.
