DEN­TON — Two re­cently re-elected mem­bers of the Caro­line County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion were sworn in at the board’s meet­ing, Tues­day, Dec. 6, fol­lowed by the elec­tion of board of­fi­cers.

On Nov. 8, Louise Cheek and Tol­bert Rowe both won their bids for elec­tion to an­other fouryear term.

This will be the sec­ond elected term for each; Rowe pre­vi­ously served two five-year terms as an ap­pointed mem­ber of Caro­line County’s unique hy­brid board.

When the board held its an­nual elec­tion of of­fi­cers dur­ing the same meet­ing, it chose Pres­i­dent James Newcomb to serve an­other one-year term, and Rowe to serve as vice pres­i­dent.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Wil­liam “Sandy” W. McAl­lis­ter Jr. of McAl­lis­ter, DeTar, Showal­ter & Walker LLC was elected to con­tinue as the board at­tor­ney.

The board is still await­ing the name of the ap­pointed mem­ber, to be cho­sen by Gov. Larry Ho­gan, who will take over the seat pre­vi­ously held by Wal­ter Palmer III. Palmer de­cided not to seek reap­point­ment when his first term ended Nov. 30.
