Oliver to serve as Zone 3 board member
By The Waldron News
During a special Waldron school board meeting, Regina Oliver was appointed as school board member for zone 3. Oliver will serve out the term previously held by Brian Jones.
“It is an honor to be asked to finish the term of the Waldron School District Zone 3, I honestly had no intentions of running or being back on the School board because I had no students in the school system. After a week of thinking this out, I decided that I honestly do have, all of them,” said Oliver. “Every child in our school system I have come in contact through the Scott County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee at our local County fair or with our local City of Waldron fishing derby . It’s rewarding to me to be part of the educational decisions of each and every one of our students and seeing them excel, and working with our district staff to give them the utmost material to educate every child in our county.”
The motion carried 3-1 by the board for Oliver’s appointment.
