School board

School board swears in election winners

The OISD board of trustees administered the oath of office to new Place 5 trustee Summer Branham and incumbent Jake Bailey and voted on new officers at the May 10 meeting. Place 4 trustee Jeff Harvey, who fended off a re-election challenge from Chris Widner, did not attend the lunchtime meeting. The board accepted the results of the May 7 election, in which Bailey and Harvey were re-elected, and Branham took the seat formerly held by Len Bernhardt for 12 years. The board re-elected Bailey as president, Place 6 trustee Kyle Hinson as vice president, and Harvey as Secretary. Branham volunteered to replace Bernhardt on the Olney Community Library and Arts Center board of directors.
