Centerville Board of Education President Clara Osterhage has announced that John Doll, a past board member, was selected by the board to fill the vacancy left by Brad Evers’ resignation earlier this month.
The board reviewed 14 applications for the open seat before selecting Doll during a special meeting on April 24. Doll, who was a member of the Centerville Board of Education from 1992-2013, will serve through the end of 2017. The seat is up for election this November.
“John brings a wealth of experience with him due to his past experience with the board,” Osterhage said. “He is committed to our district and our community, and the four board members unanimously agreed on having him rejoin the Board of Education.”
In addition to serving as a longtime board member, Doll has volunteered in a number of positions throughout the school district and in the Centerville-Washington Township community. He has practiced labor law for more than 35 years and is a partner with Doll, Jansen and Ford in Dayton.
The Centerville Board of Education is comprised of five elected resident citizens and is the governing body of the school district. The other four members include Osterhage, Vice President David Roer, Annie Self and Jeff Shroyer.
