SEQUIM — After nearly a dozen years on the Sequim School Board, Bev Horan is stepping down.

The director with the most experience on the five-member board said she is resigning because of health issues and for an opportunity to free up her schedule.

“It’s time for me to get better and take time to do other things I want to do,” she said after the board’s Tuesday meeting, where she announced her resignation effective March 20.

Horan serves as vice president of the board and as an at-large director. Her term would have expired this November.

Board directors set a timeline that could have Horan’s appointed replacement on the board by mid-April.

Applications for the open board position will be accepted through Wednesday, March 15. Board directors will interview candidates March 20. During an executive session following that meeting, directors will review candidates and make nominations after the executive session.

The newly appointed board member would be sworn in and join the board at the next regular board meeting set for April 17. That board member would finish Horan’s remaining term through the end of 2017.

School board application forms are available at the district office at 503 N. Sequim Ave. or at the district website, www.sequim.k12.wa.us, at the “Announcements” link.

For more information, call administrative assistant Marilyn Walsh at 360-582-3262 or email mwalsh@sequim.k12.wa.us.
