The resignation of Perham-Dent School Board member Christi Stoll was accepted by the board at its regular meeting Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Superintendent Mitch Anderson said Stoll’s departure leaves the district with a unique situation. By accepting the resignation, the board is left with a vacancy until the next election in November 2020, according to Anderson.
Anderson said the board has the option to appoint a new member, or select an applicant after they’ve submitted a letter of interest. From there, a committee or the full board can make a selection, Anderson said.
Stoll wasn’t present at the board meeting, but board Chairwoman Cyndy Huber thanked Stoll for her years of service to the board.
Stoll was first elected to the board in 2014, and reelected in 2018. She declined to comment about her time on the board, or the reason for her departure.
