HOLTVILLE — Marv Wood was unanimously named president of the Holtville Unified School District Board of Trustees on Thursday night.
Trustee Paula Daniels was named clerk of the board by a vote of 3-2 with Cliff Strahm and George Morris casting the dissenting votes.
Also Thursday, newly elected board member Joan Thornburg along with newly re-elected incumbents Morris and Daniels were sworn in.
A retired teacher and coach at Holtville High School, Wood, 62, was named to the school board in 1999.
"I am excited about it because of the people I will be working with," Wood said.
"I have long said that it all begins with quality management, with qualified and dedicated staff and a comprehensive, districtwide educational plan. I think we have those folks in place. I know that along with (Superintendent) Pat Maruca, and others to be named, we will soon begin working on a strategic plan.
