Following her acceptance of a position at Texas Tech University, Stillwater Board of Education Vice President Tanya Massey has resigned from the school board.
“Tanya was an exceptional board member. She brought a very thorough and thoughtful approach to every situation we faced. We will miss her contribution very much, but are confident that SPS is in a better place because of her service to our community,” said Board of Education President Tim Riley.
During its regular June meeting, the board elected Marshall Baker Vice President and declared the Ward 3 seat vacant. The board will accept applications from interested candidates to fill the role by appointment from July until the next election for the seat in February 2023.
“We know that there are many talented community members who can and will contribute greatly to the future success of SPS,” says Riley about initiating the process to fill the vacancy. “We look forward to finding an excellent candidate to join the board.”
The boundary for the Ward 3 is:
Beginning at the eastern boundary of the SSD on McElroy Rd the boundary follows the northeastern boundary of the SSD to Washington, thence south on Washington to Boomer Creek; thence south along Boomer Creek to Richmond; thence east on Richmond, south on Perkins, west on Airport to Washington; thence south on Washington, west on Lakeview, south along the eastern edge of the OSU Cross Country Course to McElroy; thence east on McElroy south on Monroe, west on Hall of Fame, and south on Cleveland to Drummond; thence east on Drummond, south on Monroe, east on University, north on Knoblock, east on Mathews, and north on Duck to McElroy; thence east on McElroy, north on Perkins Rd, east on Krayler, south on Briarwood, and south on Manning. The ward boundary then follows McElroy to the edge of the SSD.
Any patrons residing in Ward 3 interested in being considered to fill the vacant position are required to submit an application for the position by 5:00 p.m. on June 29, 2022. The board will conduct interviews at a special meeting in early July.
