A former Union Public Schools employee will fill a vacant seat on the Union Board of Education.
The Board voted 3-0 Monday night to appoint Chris McNeil to fill the Zone 2 seat through 2022.
The seat, which represents the southeastern corner of the district, was vacated in December with the resignation of Lisa Ford.
Currently pursuing a medical degree through Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences, McNeil taught financial literacy and was an assistant wrestling coach for Union Public Schools from 2014-17. He has two children, one of whom is enrolled at a Union early childhood site.
“It’s so cool to be in a spot — especially after a year of getting hit with COVID — to be in a proactive position about their education,” he said.
