REEDSVILLE — Amanda Reed was appointed as the newest member of the Eastern Local Board of Education at the start of Wednesday evening’s regular meeting.
Reed was one of four applicants for the position left vacant by the resignation of Tom Morrissey from the board last month.
Reed is also a graduate of Eastern High School, and is currently the assignment coordinator in Meigs County Common Pleas Court.
“My children now attend Eastern and are highly active in sports. We bleed green,” stated Reed in her letter to the board applying for the position. “I realize this position is not always an easy position, but working toward positive changes is not effortless but an investment.”
Other applicants for the position were Matthew King, Ron Hill and Nicholas Dettwiller.
Additional coverage of Wednesday’s meeting will appear in an upcoming edition of The Daily Sentinel.
