Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Natalie Webber to the Bagdad Unified School District Governing Board. The appointment was effective Oct. 2 and will expire on Dec. 31, 2020.
This seat was vacant due to the fact that Board Member Mikaela Gist, resigned to accept employment with the school district, making her ineligible to continue on the Board. We appreciate the efforts Mrs. Gist put forward while a member of the Governing Board.
Mrs. Webber has been a resident of the district since April 2017. She graduated from Snowflake High School in Snowflake, Arizona and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science, from Hiram College in Ohio and a Master of Science and Social Administration Degree from Case Western Reserve University, in Ohio. She is married and the couple have a child within the school district.
Mrs. Webber is self-employed and operates the Cornerstone Family Counseling Center in Prescott, counseling clients to address issues of depression, anxiety, drug abuse, and familial problems. Prior to that, she was employed by West Yavapai Guidance Clinic.
Mr. Carter believes “Mrs. Webber understands the role of the Governing Board and will work to balance the needs of students, parents, staff, and the taxpayer. She should relate well to all segments of the community and will work well with her fellow Board Members.
Mr. Carter accepted letters of interest before conducting interviews of two well-qualified candidates who expressed an interest in the position. He then spoke individually with each of the elected members of the Governing Board, members of the school staff and administration, and several area residents and taxpayers prior to making the appointment.
