SWCS board seeks to fill vacant seat


The South-Western City Schools Board of Education is accepting applications to fill a vacancy created after Jo Ellen Myers submitted her resignation Monday, June 10.

Myers, who is in the final year of her first term, is moving to Florida with her family.

Her resignation is effective June 24.

"It's a really good opportunity for us," she said of the move.

Interested district residents can submit a resume and cover letter by June 21 to board President Randy Reisling, 3805 Marlane Drive, Grove City, Ohio 43123.

Candidates must be registered to vote.

The board plans to appoint a new board member at its July 8 meeting. That person will serve the rest of Myers' term, which ends Dec. 31. Myers' replacement will need to seek election in November to retain the seat.
