Director Kevin Nigh resigned Monday night from the Pine-Richland School Board, becoming the third director to resign in less than two years.
School Board President Stephen Hawbaker announced the resignation at the end of Monday night's meeting.
"Kevin could not make it this evening," Hawbaker said after he read Nigh's brief resignation letter aloud. Hawbaker said he knew the decision was very difficult for Nigh and was made with a lot of regret.
"I thank him for his intellect and everything he did for the board," Hawbaker said.
Nigh follows Director Richard Herko, who resigned in April because he was moving to California to take a job at Pepperdine University. Prior to that Director Scott Stedeford resigned in April 2011, citing demands on his time and energy.
The board has 30 days to choose a replacement and already set 7:30 p.m. Sept. 20 as the date to interview applicants for the Region 1 seat.
Nigh was elected to a second term in November 2011 after running unopposed. He cross-filed on the Democratic and Republican ballots.
Nigh is the senior vice president of engineering at Certes Networks.
To find his replacement, the board will use the same procedures it used to replace Herko, according to Hawbaker.
"We've gotten pretty good at replacing board members," he said.
Potential applicants are encouraged to contact board secretary Tara Bennett at email@example.com or call 724-625-7773 ext. 6100.
