NLR grad­u­ate gets School Board post

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - DEATHS - CYN­THIA HOWELL

R. Han­nah Cham­bers is the choice of the North Lit­tle Rock School Board to fill the board va­cancy cre­ated by the res­ig­na­tion last month of Scott Teague.

Cham­bers was one of four ap­pli­cants for the board ap­point­ment. A 2004 grad­u­ate of North Lit­tle Rock School District schools, Cham­bers is the pro­gram co­or­di­na­tor for the Lake­wood Prop­erty Own­ers As­so­ci­a­tion and a for­mer fam­ily as­sis­tant and child care­giver for seven years for a fam­ily with four chil­dren. She is also a for­mer bank teller and in­take ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant for the Pu­laski County Ju­ve­nile Court.

She at­tended what is now the Univer­sity of Arkansas-Pu­laski Tech­ni­cal Col­lege from 2012-2015.

The new ap­pointee, once sworn in to of­fice, can only serve un­til the district’s next School Board elec­tion, which will be in Novem­ber 2018.

Cham­bers does not live in North Lit­tle Rock Zone 5. While she is el­i­gi­ble for the short-term ap­point­ment to the board, she would be un­able to run for elec­tion from that zone in Novem­ber 2018 un­less she moves, Su­per­in­ten­dent Kelly Rodgers said Thurs­day.

Other ap­pli­cants for the board seat were Sheila Camp­bell, a lo­cal at­tor­ney; Adam Bur­ris, co-founder and chief tech­nol­ogy of­fi­cer for Raise the Money Inc., as well as founder and pres­i­dent of Bur­ris Project So­lu­tions LLC; and Cindy Tem­ple, vice pres­i­dent of SP En­vi­ron­men­tal, where she is re­spon­si­ble for man­ag­ing fi­nances and daily op­er­a­tions.

School board seats are un­paid po­si­tions.
