One of the two seats up this election is to be vacated by Dr. Richard Mansfield who said his decision was due to time constraints.
The other seat is currently held by Bea Reinhardt.
Since no one filed as a write-in candidate by the deadline of Friday, April 22, for Boyne City Public Schools, Mansfield’s seat will go to Lisa Schrock.
Schrock is a mother of two and would like to become more involved with the education system.
“I moved here three-and-a-half years ago,” she said. “I have two kids — a ninth-grader and a seventh-grader who attend Boyne City schools.”
Schrock became interested in running for the school board seat after the former chair holder spoke to her.
“I had talked to Dr. Mansfield and I thought the position sounded interesting,” she said. “It would allow me to get involved with the school system, and it seemed like an interesting opportunity to do so.”
Schrock has worked for Charlevoix County for two years as an administrative assistant.
She hopes to be a part of the learning system for the benefit of all.
“I think I’m a good listener and I just want to be involved with my kids’ school and the community,” she said.
The seats both Reinhardt and Schrock seek are for four-year terms.
Voters may cast their ballot between 7 a.m. And 8 p.m. On Tuesday, May 3 at Boyne City Hall.
Running for Boyne Falls Public Schools Board of Education are Maureen Hausler, Annmarie Boettger, Diane Fiel and write-in candidate Joseph Duane Westbrook.
