The Falls Church City School Board elected Susan Kearney as its chairman and elected Greg Rasnake to serve as vice chairman. The change in leadership came following the resignation of former chairman Pat Riccards in December, and this week’s selection of Cecily Shea to fill the vacant seat until a special election is held in May.
Kearney, who became a school board member in July 2006, has served as vice-chairman since the beginning of the year. She has served as school board liaison to the Professional Employees Advisory Committee, Career and Technical Education Sub Committee of the BIE Partnership Council.
Riccards, who is serving his first term on the school board, is an attorney with the U.S government.
