KENDALL – The five-member Board of Education in Kendall unanimously backed Nadine Hanlon for another term as president.

Hanlon will be starting her third year as board president. With Hanlon as president the board approved a $1 million tax cut about a year ago. The school district is eager to begin work on a $25 million capital project that will tackle a number of improvements at two school buildings.

The district is waiting for the state Education Department to approve final designs for the project.

Hanlon was re-elected last week. A new board member also was sworn in. Chaley Swift replaces Lucille Welch, who didn’t seek re-election in May after 10 years on the board.

The board also re-elected Chris Gerken as vice president.
