School board member resigns; replacement sought

John Schwope resigned from the Mont Vernon Village School Board last week, citing personal and professional reasons.

The board is seeking a replacement to fill the seat until elections in March 2010.

Interested individuals are asked to submit a brief letter explaining their interest in the position to the SAU 39 Administrative Building, 1 School Road, Amherst.

The board will interview all applicants and vote on a replacement in the next month.

Schwope had been on the board for four years.
