The Williston School Board last week appointed Gene McCue to the open position on the Champlain Valley Union High School Board, effective June 14.
McCue told the board “the CVU School Board sounded like a good challenge and also a good way to stay active in the community,” he wrote in an email to the Observer. “I was with the Williston Little League Board for 11 years and miss the activity.”
McCue has two sons at or headed to CVU, one wrapping up his junior year and one who will head to the high school as a freshman next year.
“We have enjoyed the CVU experience greatly and I hope my participation on the board will help others (both parents and students) enjoy the experience as well,” he wrote.
McCue said he intends to spend the time until his position is up for reelection in 2015 learning the CVU board’s biggest challenges and offering ideas and energy to solve them.
Williston School Board Chair Kevin Mara said there were three candidates for the position.
“We chose Gene because he had served as a ‘budget buddy’ last year, has children either in or about to attend CVU, and has served as a youth coach in the community,” Mara wrote in an email to the Observer.
McCue will fill the position Williston resident and board member David Rath is vacating. Rath and his family are set to move to Dubai for two years.
