Taylorville School Board Appoints Two New Board Members

The Taylorville School Board filled both their vacancies at a School Board meeting held Monday evening. Rick Bryan and Jennifer Dammerman were both added to the School Board after a closed session that lasted over an hour. In a statement released from Superintendent Dr. Chris Dougherty, she says that she is excited to have them on board.  


Dr. Dougherty said, “The Board previously established qualifications for the appointee(s) in a careful and thoughtful manner. Mr. Rick Bryan and Jennifer Dammerman meet these qualifications and have demonstrated the willingness to accept the duties and responsibilities of a Board member. These two bring experience along with a community background with a clear understanding of the demands and expectations of being a Board member along with a constructive attitude toward the challenge of leading the district through this pandemic.”


Dammerman was unanimously approved (5-0) while Bryan was voted in on a 3-2 vote with School Board members Carla Mickey and Brenda Patrick voting No and Jennifer Norris, Dr. Ron Mizer, and Tricia Marburger voting Yes.  Dammerman says she’s looking forward to her time on the board.
