In an organizational meeting Tuesday, Nov. 22, the Citrus County Superintendent Sandra “Sam” Himmel swore in three School Board members, including newly elected Joseph “Joe’ Faherty in Seat No. 5, as well as Thomas Kennedy and Douglas Dodd, both of whom ran unopposed in the last election cycle. Board members who were sworn in were joined by family members, friends, and peers at the Citrus County School District chambers. School board member Doug Dodd was elected chairman to lead future meetings and board member Thomas Kennedy was elected as vice chairman. All motions moved unanimously. Former School Board Chairwoman Ginger Bryant was presented with a plaque by Himmel, thanking her for her tenure as chairwoman.
