BELLVILLE -- The Clear Fork School District's Board of Education appointed a new board member and chose a new president at its most recent meeting. 

The board appointed Bellville resident and former commander of the Ohio Air National Guard's 179th Airlift Wing Gary McCue as its newest member and voted to keep acting board president, Amy Weekley, in her role, which opened in June after former president Kyle Beveridge resigned.

"There was an opening and someone approached me about it, and it sounded like a good way to get more involved in the community," McCue said. 

He now works in Columbus for the Ohio Air National Guard. He and his wife's four daughters attended Clear Fork schools, and two have already graduated.

According to the district's treasurer, Bradd Stevens three people had turned in applications for the position. They were interviewed earlier this week in an executive session and immediately afterwards McCue was appointed to the board. The other candidates were Wesley Dingus and Koti Epperson.

McCue will serve through Dec. 31, but must seek re-election on the November ballot to serve any further time. At this time, he said he is "leaning towards running."
