New member appointed to East Maine School District 63 board
The East Maine School District 63 board Thursday appointed Morton Grove resident Katie Anderson to fill the seat left vacant when former member Angelo Scarsella stepped down in August. The appointment runs through April 2019, when the seat will be filled in the local election.
Anderson, a district resident since 2015, has three children and is an active volunteer at her church and a past American Youth Soccer Organization board member, with bachelor's degrees in English and marriage, family, and human development from Brigham Young University.
She was selected from four applicants. "Her passion for children's literacy and providing an equitable education to all D63 students resonated deeply with us," board President Alexandra Brook said in a news release.
