New VP named for Ohio County BOE

Updated: Tuesday, July 29 2014, 05:15 PM EDT

The Ohio County Board of Education appointed a vice-president on Tuesday afternoon.

Gary Kestner, already a board member for two years, was named vice-president.

BOE President Shane Mallett said although this is a new position in Ohio County, many school boards in the state have vice-presidents.

“It was something long overdue we had discussed it in prior boards,” said Mallett. “Most of the counties in the state have a vice-president and we were a little bit behind on that thought so we thought it was appropriate this time and we passed a policy last night,” said Mallett.

Kestner has several years’ experience working for the students of Ohio County. He said he looks forward to this new opportunity and will assist Mallett.

“We're looking at taking the board in a new direction a direction that truly addresses the needs of the children and the taxpayers you know sometimes I think we have gotten away from that,” said Kestner.

Meanwhile, board members are encouraging the public to attend meetings and express their opinions and concerns. The next meeting is Aug. 11 at 6 p.m.
