WANAMINGO – At the November 24 Kenyon-Wanamingo School Board meeting, Superintendent Jeff Evert said that in January there will be a vacancy on the board.
In the general elections, four seats were available on the board. Two candidates filed, Marilyn Syverson and Jennifer Smith, and Jeremy Lerfald ran as a write-in. After election results were canvassed, 95 voters had named Brian Flom as a write-in for school board, giving Lerfald and Flom the highest number of write-ins. Flom declined the position.
Evert said options the school board has to fill the vacancy would be:
1. To offer a two-year term to an existing board member going off. This would be either Lisa Johnson, Debb Paquin, or Elise Wrolstad.
2. Advertise in December for the position and accept applications for consideration.
