Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter appointed Anne Hathaway to the Ash Fork Joint Unified School District Governing Board.
Hathaway will serve on the board through Dec. 31 - the remainder of Barbara Stump's term. Stump resigned because of health concerns.
"Mrs. Hathaway's experience as an educator, her previous work with governing boards and her extensive knowledge of curriculum, instruction, school budgetary processes and establishing short and long range goals should serve her very well in this capacity," Carter said. "She understands the role of the governing board and will work to balance the needs of students, parents, staff and the taxpayer."
Hathaway has lived in Ash Fork for five years. She is retired and taught English in Virginia and Florida for 25 years. She earned a bachelor's degree in English at Southern Methodist University and a master's degree in English and secondary education from George Mason University.
