Williamsburg’s newest school board member is a familiar face.
During the Williamsburg Independent Board of Education’s monthly meeting Tuesday, board attorney Paul Croley swore Kim White into office.
White replaces Jason Caddell, who was elected to the board in 2016 and resigned from the board in April.
Caddell, who serves as Williamsburg Assistant Police Chief, said that he didn’t realize before he ran that there was a law that prohibits city or county employees from serving on a school board, and he resigned from office after learning about it.
Kentucky Interim Commissioner of Education Dr. Wayne D. Lewis Jr. appointed White to replace Caddell.
White served 12 years as a Williamsburg board member before deciding not to seek re-election in 2016.
She returns to the board after a nearly one and one-half year absence and has already filed to run for the remainder of the term in office.
White said that she has really missed serving on the board.
“I just want to help the school in any way that I can. I feel like I learned a lot as a board member,” White noted. “I have a passion for Williamsburg City School. I want to provide the best service we can for our students.”
