LAS VEGAS –
The Clark County School District Board of Trustees elected new officers for 2012 during its annual organization meeting and work session today.
Board members selected Linda Young to serve as president, Deanna Wright to serve as vice president and John Cole to serve as clerk.
Young represents District C and has been a board member since 2009. She previously served as vice president and clerk.
“I am honored to take on this role serving the community, our students and parents,” Young said. “I look forward to working closely with our superintendent, hard-working staff and my fellow trustees to continue the important work of growing student achievement.”
Wright, who was selected vice president and represents District A, will be assisting Young in leading the board. Wright has served on the board since 2009, and has previously served as clerk.
Rounding out the trio of officers is Cole. He represents District E and was appointed to the board in January 2011 to fill the unexpired term vacated by former trustee Terri Janison.
During the annual election of officers, the trustees recognized outgoing president Carolyn Edwards, who reflected on some of the positive steps the district took during the past year.
“It was an honor to serve as president of the board during 2010 and 2011, and I would like to thank my peers for their support in moving the district forward with the implementation of the Nevada Growth Model, the School Performance Framework and the start of our Open Enrollment program,” Edwards said. “There is always more work to be done in our ongoing efforts to improve the quality of education for our students, so I will continue to work with President Young in meeting those challenges.”
