Dixie Youngers will take the oath of office during the next meeting of the North Kansas City Board of Education.

Last night the board appointed Youngers to a one-year term. She will fill the seat vacated by Tammy Henderson, who resigned too late for her position to be filled by election earlier this month.

Youngers served a previous one-year term and had to run again to remain on the school board. She came in fourth in the election. Three positions were on the ballot, and the winners were incumbent Melissa Roberts plus newcomers Jeffrey “Chip” Luerding and Jay Wilson.

Three candidates applied for the appointment. However, former board member Chace Ramey withdrew his name from consideration. The other candidate was veteran educator Shirley Fessel.

Henderson resigned to take a job as the district’s chief communications and community affairs officer.

The next board meeting, which will be open to the public, will take place Tuesday, May 8, at the district’s Doolin Center; 1900 N.E. 46th St.; Kansas City, MO 64116.
