Citing her mothers failing health, School Board Vice Chair, Jenn Ganem, announced that she will be stepping off the board to better serve her family.
At the most recent School Board meeting, on Tuesday Aug. 10, Ganem took a moment at the end of the meeting to read a prepared statement.
Ganem explained, “I wanted to take to inform the board that I will be turning in my resignation effective tomorrow. This is not due to the recent mask and COVID issues, it is related to my mothers significant decline in health.”
She added that she had hoped to make the remaining seven months of her term but said that it does not seem possible at this time.
She finished by saying, “I wanted everyone to know that I greatly apprietiate this board and former members of the board and the district office for a friendly discourse over the past six years.”
Chairman Michael Saucier responded that he wanted to say, “We will obviously miss you, and we wish your family best health in everything you can have.”
The meeting ended with Saucier asking Ganem to end the meeting to go into non-public.
The School District released the following information after Ganem’s announcement.
There is currently an open seat on the School Board.
The School Board invites any Londonderry resident interested in applying for this position to email the School District Clerk Kerri Stanley (email@example.com) a resume and a letter of interest.
