In a special-called meeting Friday morning, the remaining members of the John de la Howe School board of trustees voted on a new board chairman and vice-chairman.
Present board members Barbara Devinney, Felicia Preston and Donna Wesby voted unanimously to institute Devinney as board chairwoman and Wesby as vice chairwoman until June. At such time, the board will revisit the board officers.
Preston will remain on as secretary.
