Portage Board of Education picks seventh member

Portage Board of Education.
Portage Board of Education.

PORTAGE (WKZO) -- The Portage Board of Education has selected Terri Novaria to fill a vacant seat on their board.

Portage Schools may have been closed and the weather conditions dangerous, but trustees were up against a deadline to fill the empty seat and so they spent 2-1/2 hours Monday evening interviewing seven candidates to replace Trustee Tom Eddy who died last month.

State law only gives them 30-days to fill vacancies and today was the deadline.

The board was impressed with all the applicants and urged them to run in the fall.
