Kline previously served on the Nelsonville-York Board for one term in the late 1990s.
“We are excited to have so many good candidates for the seat,” said Covert.
Kline was selected by a 4-0 vote following a one hour executive session to discuss the candidates. Kline has also been employed by the district as a project manager in the past involving the recent building projects.
“He worked to save the district thousands of dollars and make sure our buildings are in great shape,” said Covert. “We are very pleased with the experience as a past board member and with school finances which he brings to the position.”
Now back to full strength, the Board is now looking forward to the future and several key items within the next year. That includes the retirement of Supt. Mick McClelland which is expected next summer, the new state budget and other possible changes at the state level.
This makes the third person to be appointed to the board in 2014. All three had service on the board prior to their appointments this year.
Roberta Bunting was re-appointed to the board in January filling the seat she left vacant when she did not run for re-election and no one else ran for the seat. Steve Berry was appointed to the board in April following the resignation of Duane Andrews. Berry had previously served nine years on the board.
According to Covert there will be four seats up for election in Nov. 2015, with three four-year terms and one unexpired two-year term to be elected. All seats with the exception of the one held by Covert will be voted on in 2015.
Covert encouraged those who expressed interest in the position to consider running in 2015.
