13 Champaign citizens apply for short-term school board stints
CHAMPAIGN — Thirteen people have applied for two short-term seats on the Champaign school board, said school board member Jamar Brown.
The board is expected to name two people to the board at its meeting Monday, and they will serve on the board until new members are elected in April.
— Arlene Blank
— Josh Beardall
— Laurie Bonnett
— G. David Frye
— Ginny Holder
— Chuck Jackson
— Scott MacAdam
— Elly Peirson
— Karl Radnitzer
— Adam Slagell
— Lynn Stuckey
— Mark Toalson
— Phil Van Ness
The school board’s regular meeting will begin at 6 p.m. Monday at the Mellon Administrative Center, 703 S. New St., C.
School district spokeswoman Stephanie Stuart said the school board will interview applicants in closed session at 5 p.m. Monday.
Bonnett, Jackson, MacAdam and Stuckey are all candidates running for school board in the April election. MacAdam, Blank and and Van Ness are former school board members.
John Williams III is also running for school board, but is not on the list of applicants to fill one of the two seats until the election.
The board is filling the two seats after the December resignations of Tommy Lockman and Sue Grey. Lockman’s seat is open in the April election, as is the last two years of Grey’s term.
Board President Stig Lanesskog said in December that the board would appoint the new members at the Jan. 14 meeting.
