NEWEST SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER TAKES

OATH OF OFFICE TUESDAY

 

MARION COUNTY – The newest member of the Marion County School Board takes her oath of office Tuesday, November 17, at 10:45AM in a ceremony airing live on the Marion Education Channel and YouTube (www.YouTube.com/MCPSmedia).

 

The event takes place in School Board chambers located at 512 SE Third Street in Ocala.

 

Allison Campbell takes office as her three children hold the Bible.  Her husband, Andy, will administer the oath.  Campbell will represent District One which includes Eighth Street, Greenway, Madison Street Academy, Shady Hill, South Ocala, and Wyomina Park Elementary Schools; Osceola Middle; Forest and Lake Weir High Schools; and Marion Technical Institute.

 

Campbell joins fellow School Board Members Eric Cummings, Kelly King, Beth McCall (who ran unopposed this year), and Nancy Thrower.

 

Following Campbell’s oath of office, the School Board holds its annual reorganization meeting at 11AM and the annual meeting of the Marion County School Board Leasing Corporation at 11:15AM.

 

School Board members serve four-year staggered terms and regularly meet throughout the year for work sessions and meetings open to the public.

 

The Marion Education Channel is available on Comcast 99, Cox 12, and a handful of local cable systems.
