The District 204 school board has filled its vacant position.
Benjamin White is replacing Curt Bradshaw, who left to serve on the Illinois State Board of Education.
White is a retired Lieutenant Colonel who served 22 years in the U.S. Army and has taught at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
204 board President Susan Rasmus said it’s his leadership skills that impressed the board so much that they chose him out of the 21 applicants.
White will serve on the board until the April 2013 election.
