Andrea Seefeldt was sworn into the Piedmont School Board Tuesday to fill the vacant school board seat last occupied by Alan Blankenship, who moved out of the area from which he was elected to serve.
The five school board members are elected from geographical districts within the Piedmont School District.
Piedmont Schools Superintendent James White said Blankenship moved into a different geographical boundary within Piedmont late last year.
White said Seefeldt will serve the rest of Blankenship’s school board term, which is one year. After that year is up, the school board seat will be appointed by a vote of the people in a general election.
The other school board members are Karen Green (president) Jerrod Moser (vice president) Stanley Nance (Clerk) and Laura King-Reed (member).
