GREENFIELD — The Greenfield-Central School Board welcomed its newest member Wednesday.
Willie McKinney, 51, will officially join the board Jan. 1. He replaces outgoing board member Kent Fisk, who is vacating the position early in order to sit on the Hancock County Council. Fisk was elected to the council in November. He still had two years left in his term on the school board.
In a brief special meeting Thursday, the board approved McKinney, an accountant, to replace Fisk. McKinney will serve the remainder of Fisk’s term, through 2014.
The board also accepted Fisk’s resignation letter at the special meeting Thursday.
