A Boise native who has served in city, county and state government has been tapped for the Boise School District Board of Trustees.
Shauneen Grange, 48, will replace Rory Jones, who resigned on Dec. 10 after serving 26 years.
Grange was among 10 people who applied.
She answered questions and provided background information in a written application. Board members then interviewed the candidates before Monday's meeting, and the candidates spoke during the meeting.
The trustees voted Monday to appoint Grange, a Capital High School graduate and former chief administrative officer for the City of Boise. Grange also was chief of staff for former House Minority Leader Wendy Jaquet and was field director for the effort that resulted in the College of Western Idaho. She also served on redistricting commissions in 2001 and 2011.
We were pleased that so many quality candidates applied for the open seat, Superintendent Don Coberly said in a prepared statement. "It was a difficult decision for our Board, but we are excited to have Shauneen join us as we continue to prepare our students for college and career opportunities."
