The Kodiak Island School Board
traded one Peggy for another as they announced its newest member this (Wednesday)
afternoon. The board appointed Peggy Rauwolf to replace outgoing member Peggy
Jeff Stephen, a member of the
school board helped run the meeting via conference phone, since half the board
members were out of town.
(Schools 1 :16s “…to replace Peggy Tuttle.”)
Rauwolf, reached in Homer, says she
is extremely happy to be appointed to this position.
2 :22s “…from ear to ear.”)
Rauwolf works at GCI as a lead
sales representative. She ran for the seat last year and lost to Melissa Borton
by only 15 votes.
Incoming Superintendent Stuart
McDonald says he is happy to welcome Rauwolf to the school board.
(Schools 3 :07s “…serve our community well.”)
Rauwolf was one of two applicants
for the vacancy created when Tuttle resigned. Tuttle’s husband is in the Coast
Guard and is being transferred out of state. Ken McCarty was the other
candidate vying for the position.
Even though she’s helping out at
GCI’s Homer offices for a few weeks, Rauwolf will be back in Kodiak to be sworn
in at the school board’s regular meeting on Monday. She will serve until
October, when the seat will be up for election to fill out the last year of
Tuttle’s unexpired term.
