Fourth district member Kate Miller met with her colleagues on the Board of Education for the first time Thursday night during the regular monthly session.
Prior to the meeting, Miller was sworn into office by County Mayor Tim Stribling at the Board of Education Building.
Miller was appointed by the county commission last month to serve a portion of her husband Billy Miller's unexpired term on the school board. Billy Miller had to resign due to job obligations.
Kate Miller will serve as an appointee until the August 2016 County General Election. The election will be held to fill the remaining two years of Billy Miller's unexpired term which ends August 31, 2018.
Director of Schools Mark Willoughby presented Billy Miller a School Bell Award in appreciation for his four years of service on the Board of Education.
Meanwhile, Director Willoughby presented his monthly update on personnel moves.
