Chimacum School Board names new member

CHIMACUM — The Chimacum School Board finished a roughly two-month search for a new school board member and appointed LuAnn Rogers to represent District 2.

The District 2 seat was vacated in October when Cammy Brown, who had served in that position for more than 15 years, handed in her resignation.

After an application process, the final candidates were interviewed by the current school board members. According to Chimacum Superintendent Rick Thompson, Rogers was the favorite.

“The board members were impressed with her willingness to learn school policy,” Thompson said.

She was appointed by a unanimous vote at the school board meeting Jan. 11, which was also her first meeting.

Rogers will undergo a training period where she will learn about school policies, how meetings run and open meetings laws, Thompson said.

Rogers’ district encompasses Irondale.

According to Thompson, Rogers is familiar with the district, with two children graduated from Chimacum High School, one just this spring.

Outside of her new school board appointment, Rogers is a nurse for Jefferson Healthcare.

“She’s involved in the community, she’s been a part of the district, so we’re excited to have her,” Thompson said.

The next Chimacum School Board meeting is at 6 p.m. Jan. 25 at 91 West Valley Road.
