Good named to Lakewood board

HEBRON - Trisha A. Good missed being elected to the Lakewood School Board by seven votes in November. She came in third after Forrest O. Cooperrider and Robert A. Large in the threeway race for two seats.

Board members selected Good at a Dec. 22 special meeting to fillthe two remaining years of Connie Fought's term. Fought died December 7 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Good was one of two persons who applied to fill the rest of Fought's term. Both were interviewed by board members in an executive session during the Dec. 22 special meeting.

Superintendent Jay Gault said board members were pleased with the caliber of both candidates. Good got the edge since she had taken the initiative in seeking a board seat in November.

Good has been a member of Lakewood's Citizens Advisory Committee since 2005 and was elected chairperson in January 2007. The Union Township resident has lived in the district since 1994 and has two children attending Lakewood Schools.
