Current President Ian Phillips, as well as Danielle Wood both expressed interested in the president and vice presidency.
While Phillips currently serves as president, Dr. Eli Hernandez currently serves as Vice President.
Hernandez voiced support for Wood in the leadership role.
“I was interested previously in running for a leadership role on the board. After completing my first term, I have gained a lot of knowledge, and am eager to continue to keep learning. For the last three years, I’ve been committed to working hard by attending our regular meetings, committee meetings, and anything I am able to district-wide. I care a lot about our community and truly enjoy my seat on our board, and would work hard to support our students and staff as Vice President,” Wood told The Citizen of the decision to seek the position.
An official vote for leadership posts will take place Thursday, July 7.
