PRAIRIE GROVE – One of Prairie Grove School District 46’s board members has resigned.
John Bowman, who was elected to the board in 2013, said he “had too many things on his plate and too many plates” and that stepping down from the board was a “wrenching decision but [one that] had to be done.”
Bowman started his involvement with District 46 as a senior volunteer 10 years ago and served as an interim technology director while the district looked to make a permanent hire, he said.
His resignation was effective at noon Monday, Superintendent Phil Bender said, adding the board will be looking to fill Bowman’s spot.
Letters of interest, along with a short resume, can be emailed to Bender at firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at the school district office, 3223 Route 176, Crystal Lake.
The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. April 29.
The board will hold a special meeting May 5 to review the applications and determine the next steps, Bender said.
