Kurdell elected Hillsborough School Board chair



Carolkurdell_2Fresh off the campaign trail, Carol Kurdell is the new chair of the Hillsborough School Board.

The board also elected Susan Valdes as vice chair at last night's annual reorganization meeting. The leadership positions are rotating ones on the Hillsborough board.

This caps off an election season in which voters returned four incumbents to the board. Jack Lamb and Doretha Edgecomb were re-elected without opposition. Valdes won a second term during a primary race, and Kurdell earned a sixth term on the board in a run-off election.
