The Jacksonville City Council has appointed a new school board member. Jennifer Sims will sworn in to serve the remainder of Mike Poe’s term, which ends in October 2018. Poe resigned his seat last month.
Sims retired from Anniston City Schools in 2013. She previously ran in 2014 for a seat on the Jacksonville School Board. Superintendent Dr. Mark Petersen says he and the other board members are looking forward to working with Sims.
Sims says one of her biggest goals is to help keep the board and its activities open to the public.
