May elected 2014 Dublin School Board president


Lynn May will lead the Dublin Board of Education in 2014.

The Dublin City School District Board of Education this week unanimously elected May president of the board and Stu Harris vice president.

As board president, May will lead meetings and represent the school board at events for the next two years. Harris will take over for May if she is absent.

"Thanks to Mr. (Chris) Valentine for his service the past two years," May said of the former board president. "You've done a very good job. We appreciate you service."

May took an oath of office for the beginning of her third term on Jan. 13 along with incumbent Harris and newcomer Rick Weininger.

The Jan. 13 swearing in marked Harris' third term on the board of education.

Weininger took the seat of Gwen Calender, who did not run in the fall.

Weininger worked in the Dublin City School District for several years, including leading Karrer Middle School as principal.

"I want to let everyone know I'll do my very best for students and parents," Weininger said.

Superintendent Todd Hoadley applauded the board for the smooth transition.

"It's so nice that we can stay focused on students," he said. "Thanks to Rick Weininger. Stepping up to public service is a true calling."

The board also approved its 2014 meeting schedule of Jan. 27; Feb. 10 and 24; March 10 and 20; April 14 and 28; May 12 and 27; June 9, 23 and 26; July 14; Aug. 11 and 25; Sept. 8 and 22; Oct. 13 and 27; Nov. 13 and 24; and Dec. 9. The first meeting of the month will be held at the 1919 building and the second meeting of the month will be held at the central office, with the exception of the February meetings, which will both be held at the central office.
