Woodridge Board of Education appoints new member

The Woodridge Board of Education has a new member.

Jeanine Glover was selected by the board to fill the post after interviews were conducted with all seven applicants Tuesday night.

"Mrs. Glover interviewed very well," said Board of Education President Tammy Heffernan. "She truly seemed to understand the role of a school board member and chain of command. As a bonus, she has children in our district and is involved in various school opportunities. We look forward to her insights and joining our team of board members."

The Board had a position to fill after longtime Board member Marilyn Hansen died on March 7 at the age of 88.

Other applicants for the vacancy were Aixa Bakuhn, Charles Kilbel, Kelly Loudin, James Montaquila, Renata Rassi and Melissa Wilkinson.

Glover will serve for the remainder of Hansen's term, which ends Dec. 31, 2023.
