Gov. Asa Hutchinson appointed a former elementary school teacher and a Springdale School Board member to fill vacancies in the Arkansas Board of Education on Thursday.

The governor’s appointments were announced in a news release. They are: Dr. Sarah Moore, a former educator from Stuttgart, and Kathy McFetridge, a school board member from Springdale.

Moore will replace Joseph Black of Newport and McFetridge will replace Mireya Reith, who was also from Springdale. The pair were given seven-year appointments.

With the new appointments, the state Board of Education will be made up of six women and three men. The state commissioner of education is Johnny Key.

“With Mrs. McFetridge’s decades of experience on the Springdale School Board and Dr. Moore’s extensive knowledge of education policy and elementary teaching experience, I am confident that these two new members of the State Board of Education will provide a well-rounded perspective to the board that oversees one of our most critical responsibilities — the education of our children,” Hutchinson said in a statement.

Hutchinson has now appointed seven of the board’s members.
