The Fayette County Board of Education selected John Aaron to fill the vacancy left on the board by the resignation of Waldon Tucker in District 1 during its July 21 meeting. The action was taken at the conclusion of the board’s regular agenda and before the meeting was adjourned. Board Member Keith Madison was absent from the meeting, with the remainder of the board members present. Board President Tom Hubbert stated that the board had requested applications from people in District 1 interested in the position, and that Board Member John Stowe and Madison joined him on a selection committee that selected and interviewed six candidates for the position. The committee narrowed the candidates to two individuals who were presented to the board for a vote.
