During the May 24 Board of Education meeting, the board unamiously appointed Michael Murphy to position of board president since Joe Unangst, acting president, has resigned from that duty for work-related reasons.
After being sworn in, Murphy said the past year has been anything but normal with former BOE president Mark Lawson's resignation and the untimely death of Pat Mouton.
Although Murphy will only serve as president for 37 days until his term ends, the appointment was made by his fellow board members, of which he was honored.
Donald Cook was also appointed to serve out the remaining 37 days, also, before he begins his newly-elected term of three years.
The board also reported a total of $3,320 in funds collected in the Pat Mouton Memorial Fund.
