President of the Shelbyville Central Schools Board of Trustees Curtis Johnson released the following announcement of the board's newest member:
The Shelbyville Central Schools Board of Trustees advertised for applications to fill the vacancy of the District 1 board member. This seat was previously held by John C. DePrez IV who was recently named board attorney.
Six candidates applied for the position. Interviews that were open to the public were held on Jan. 25.
The Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Katherine Garringer to fill the vacant seat. Dr. Garringer is an optometrist with McDaniel Family Eye Clinic and is a graduate of Shelbyville High School.
After the interviews board member Dr. Jim Rees commented “all six applicants would do an outstanding job, they could easily replace us with the schools being in capable hands.”
Johnson reiterated appreciation for the strong candidates and outstanding talent that applied.
Dr. Garringer will be formally appointed at the board’s next meeting Wednesday.
The entire Shelbyville Central Schools family welcomes Dr. Garringer to her new position on the board.
