Cardington-Lincoln board of education member resigns

Vickie Kerman, who was serving her first term on the Cardington-Lincoln Board of Education, submitted her resignation from the board effective Aug. 24.

According to a release from Superintendent Brian Petrie, Kerman, whose term expires on Dec. 31, 2017, chose to step aside to allow for board member-elect Matt Meyers to get an early start working with the board on strategic planning and other district projects.

Meyers and current board vice president Pat Clark are running unopposed in the Nov. 7 election.

Superintendent Petrie said that in accordance with board policy and Ohio Revised Code, the board will vote to appoint Meyers at its next regular meeting on Sept. 11 at 6 p.m. in the Cardington-Lincoln Board of Education office.

Speaking on behalf of the board Petrie said, “The board wishes to commend Ms. Kerman for her outstanding representation of the stakeholders of the district, her valuable input and direction and her efforts in starting the Cardington-Lincoln Education Foundation. She will remain chairperson of the foundation.”
