New school board member chosen
The Tonganoxie school board Monday night selected local resident Diane Truesdell to fill Rick Lamb's seat on the seven-member panel.
The four board members present voted unanimously for Truesdell, whose husband, Jim, is a member of the Tonganoxie City Council.
Truesdell will begin her duties immediately.
Board members said Truesdell and the other candidate, Paula Gish, also of Tonganoxie, were strong candidates.
