Jonathan Naylor was named to fill a vacant seat on the Carrollton Schools board of education during a special meeting Jan. 25.
Naylor, a Carrollton resident, was selected from a field of 12 applicants during a 25-minute executive session that kicked off the meeting, held in the CHS extended learning space. He fills the seat vacated by the resignation of Mike Pozderac Jan. 1. Pozderac was indicted by a Carroll County grand jury on charges related to the sale of air purifiers to the district and attempting to conceal the transactions. The term ends Dec. 31, 2023.
A youth pastor at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church and a 2007 graduate of CHS, Naylor has been affiliated with the school district since 2016 as a cross country and track coach.
He will continue to coach on a volunteer basis, according to School Board President Dan Ries, who noted he cannot be a board member and a school employee.
“I’m passionate about kids and I’m passionate about the community,” Naylor said following his appointment. “I wish to step in and help wherever I am needed.”
School District Treasurer Amy Spears administered the oath of office to Naylor, who joined the board for its final action of the meeting, a motion to adjourn.
Naylor and his wife Kelsey, have two children.
Ries and Board Member Rose Seck both noted all the candidates were well qualified to sit on the board.
“I want them to know we have all kinds of things they can volunteer for at the shool,” Ries noted.
Seck added her thoughts, echoing the qualifications of the candidates, stating there will be three seats on the school board up for election at the Nov. 7 general election and she hopes they will consider seeking a seat.
