School Trustee Will Be Sworn In Early

Rhonda Burchett

WATER VALLEY – Rhonda Burchett will take office early as the new Position 5 Water Valley School District board member. School board members appointed Burchett during the October 25 meeting to fill a vacancy following the resignation of Chris Terry, who stepped down at an earlier meeting after he moved out of the district he served.

Burchett was already scheduled to take office in January for a five-year term after she was the only candidate who qualified for the Position 5 slot earlier this year.

“Welcome aboard,” Superintendent Jerry Williams  told Burchett, who attended the meeting. She will be sworn in at the next school board meeting.

Terry had served as president of the board and Jill Clark was tapped to lead the board until the end of the year. School board members typically elect officers annually in January. Other school board members include Rodney Phillips (vice-president), Joseph Flippin (secretary) and Kathryn York.
