Retired Educator Appointed to Fill Vacancy

It looks as if Jewell Tindall can't get away from education. At the recommendation of the Lee County legislative delegation, Governor Mark Sanford has appointed the retired Lee County educator to fill the vacancy created by the sudden death April 5, 2009 of Will Ed McKenzie.

McKenzie ran unopposed and was elected to represent the citizenry in district 2 in the November 2008 election.

Tindall, who previously served as a trustee for 8 years, is expected to be sworn in at the next board meeting. She will then represent the citizens of Lee County District 2 until the general election in November of 2010 and has said that she will not be a candidate for the school board in 2010.

Welcome back Mrs. Tindall.
