Longtime Vandalia School Board President Chris Palmer announced during Tuesday evening’s monthly board meeting that he will be resigning from the board effective September 30. Palmer stated he had previously planned to resign at the end of this year. However, he wanted to make way for the new member chosen for the board to be able to attend training that school board members will attend later this fall in Chicago. To fill the empty board seat, the position will be advertised locally and applications accepted for the seat. If multiple applications are received, the board would then conduct interviews prior to choosing someone to fill the seat.
