Cynthia Snider was elected to the Adams Central Board of Education during a special meeting held this week.
Snider fills the seat of former member Steve Bailey, who resigned at the beginning of the year after accepting a new job in another state. Bailey was re-elected to the board in November, meaning Snider's appointment is a full four-year term.
The board interviewed two candidates Monday, Snider and Julie Foster, after opening the position to the public in December.
The 22nd annual meeting of the United Way of Adams County (UW) was held this week, with the main order of business being the election of board members to three-year terms.
Six board members were eligible to return for a second three-year term and were re-elected: Corey Affolder, Maggie Bollinger, Becky Cochran, Kenny Ketzler, Dan Kintz and Bill Warren.
