On Tuesday evening, the Ridgway Area School Board of Directors approved Andy Thompson to fill the recently-vacated seat on the board. Lucy Bobby, the former holder of the position, resigned effective Feb. 19 of this year and her resignation was approved unanimously by the board, with regret.
Thompson was nominated to fill the position by Cindy Allegretto and the motion was seconded by Dave Parsons. No additional nominations were made by the board.
Board president Lisa Connelly closed the nomination process and the board unanimously accepted Thompson to the new seat following a motion made by Kathy Lampman and again seconded by Dave Parsons.
