SCOTTVILLE — Three people have applied for an open seat on the Mason County Central Public Schools Board of Education. There were three board positions up for election in 2016 but only two candidates ran. The third seat was left open when board president Sherry Wyman chose to not run for another term. Instead, Wyman was elected to the West Shore Community College Board of Trustees.

Answering the call to fill the four-year term were Becky Alway, Chad Nelson, and Darrell Storvick.

Alway and Nelson both live in Scottville while Storvick lives in Victory Township.

Alway is an adjunct instructor of photography at West Shore Community College and also co-owner of Media Group 31 LLC (Mason County Press’s parent company) and Alway Photography. Nelson works at Whitehall Industries as a machine operator and Storvick is pastor of Victory Baptist Church.

Interviews will be held today at MCC High School:

  • 5:15 p.m.: Alway
  • 5:40 p.m.: Nelson
  • 6:05 p.m.: Storvick.

Interviews are open to the public. The board of education will then hold its organizational meeting at 6:45 p.m. which is when it will select a president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. It will also make committee appointments, designate a liaison to the Michigan Association of School Boards, and appoint a member of the board to serve as the board’s representative to the West Shore Educational Service District for the purpose of budge review.

The board will then hold its regular January meeting at 7 p.m. During that time it is expected to fill the vacant board position.
