20 Pounds Of Headlines

Kansas City Missouri School Board member Derek Richey is resigning.
The district says Richey is resigning to take another job out of town.
“It has been an honor to serve the students, parents, and citizens of Kansas City over the past four years,” said Richey. “The work has been both challenging and rewarding. I wish Dr. Green and the Board continued success,” Richey said in a statement.
Richey was appointed to the Board in 2008.
He was elected to a full term from sub-district 2 in 2010.
He served for a while as the Board Vice President. He briefly led the Board after Erik West resigned during the tumult that followed Dr. John Covingron’s resignation in 2011. West later resumed the presidency a couple of weeks later.
