The McKinleyville Union School District Board of Trustees swore in Theresa Grosjean during the Wednesday night meeting.
Grosjean said she was excited and happy to be appointed to the board and those in attendance seemed supportive of the decision.
"It's hard to put into words how excited I am," Grosjean said. "I've been pretty involved with the board over the last year, especially during the reconfiguration and worked hard with the parent community at Morris to work with the district without compromising our position."
Grosjean added that she is excited to have a stronger voice than she has in the past
