Weatherford ISD Board members appointed Ashley Conlon to serve in the Place 3 position at Wednesday's special-called meeting in the District Services Building Board Room.
Conlon, a long-time Weatherford resident, replaces Col. Kim Olson (Ret.) who recently stepped down because she and her family is moving out of the area. Weatherford ISD’s policy requires Trustees to reside within the school district.
"Board members felt it would be a great asset for Conlon to join the group and actively participate in the process of hiring of a new superintendent," WISD Board President Charlie Martinez said. "Her input definitely will be welcomed as we strive to find a replacement for Dr. [Deborah] Cron."
Dr. Cron will be retiring after the Board finds a suitable replacement. She will be leaving behind more than 40 years of service in Texas public education.
Conlon will serve in the Place 3 position until next year's school board election. Following next year's election, that position will be served until the remainder of Col. Olson's original term in 2013.
