Kirksville School Board has a new member

School Board Candidates, Nan Davis and Greg Gordon met with the board to decide who will be the new member.

The Kirksville School Board of Education now has a new member on the team.

At Wednesday evening's school board meeting in Kirksville, the two remaining candidates, Nan Davis and Greg Gordon, came to meet with the board and give their reasons why they wanted to be on the school board and what they can bring to the board if chosen.

Board members also had the chance to ask questions for the candidates on different issues such as decision making, budget, and long range planning.

Afterwards, the school board did a hand vote in which ended with a tie.

At that point, a drawing with the candidates names was done, and in the end Greg Gordon was chosen as the new school board member.

Gordon will be sworn in at the next school board meeting.
