On Jan. 8, the board interviewed three candidates for the Subdistrict 1 vacancy. The seat was open after Board Member Ms. Yolanda Williams resigned from the board due to moving out of the boundary lines of Subdistrict 1.
The Board selected Mr. Ricky Smith to fill the seat for subdistrict 1.
Smith works in senior admissions/diversity and community outreach at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He is a former Benson and Northwest High football coach, volunteer and has two children in OPS.
Mr. Smith took his oath of office during the board meeting last night and began his term of office which goes until Jan. 4, 2021.
