Ramona Luera Dillon was provisionally appointed by board members to a seat on the El Centro Elementary School District Board of Trustees during a special meeting Thursday.
Dillon, who says she's "interested in seeing what I can do to help kids," was one of four candidates seeking to fill the board vacancy left when then-Trustee Steve Walker won a seat on the Central Union High School District Board of Trustees.
"I'm honored by the confidence placed in me," Dillon said after being sworn into the position.
Pledging to look at all issues with an open mind, Dillon said she was "happy to be appointed and get in the middle of it and see what I can do to help teachers and children."
Dillon is the human resources manager for Imperial Stores. She and her husband have two children, both of whom attend public schools in El Centro.
