Kameron Perez-Verdia sworn in as board member for seat D


The school board office received 41 applications to fill Anchorage School Board seat D, vacated by Gretchen Guess earlier this month. On March 30 the board interviewed 31 candidates for the seat. Kameron Perez-Verdia and Thomas Corkran were the two finalists. The board was locked in a 3-3 vote before selecting Corkran. The following day, Corkran declined his appointment. Perez-Verdia was appointed and sworn in as the Anchorage School Board’s newest member at their meeting on April 1, 2013. He will fill the vacant seat D until the April 2014 municipal election.
