It's a thankless job with no pay, but some Lawrence residents campaign hard to get it.
Those who are elected serve for at least four years on the Lawrence school board.
Maley Wilkins serves as president and has been on the board since 1995. James Hilliard is the board vice president. Hilliard, Leni Salkind and Austin Turney are the newest members of the board. They took their seats in July 1997.
Board members serve four-year terms.
The board usually meets the first and third Monday of the month at the school district service center, 3705 Clinton Pkwy. To be added to the board's agenda, call the service center, 832-5000.
