Governor Parson has appointed two members to the Missouri State School Board: Peter Herschend of Branson and Carol Hallquist of Kansas City.
“Many Missouri education organizations are likely feeling a sense of relief today because the board can resume its work. Executive Director of the Missouri School Boards’ Association, Melissa Randol, praises Parson’s move.
“We thank Governor Parson for placing such a high priority on appointments to the State Board of Education. The extraordinary experience of the two appointees will enable the State Board to resume its responsibilities quickly. We look forward to working with the State Board on policy issues that will have a positive impact on the education being provided to Missouri’s 900,000 public school students,” Randol said in a news release.
