(WBRE/WYOU) — The Scranton School Board has a new school board director.
Gretchen Welby is one of four who applied for the position. Other board members voted Thursday night for her to fill out a two-year term of a vacant school director position.
The board needs to fill a second vacancy. Mark McAndrew left after being elected in November to a Scranton City Council seat. Applications will start next week and the Scranton school board hopes to appoint the final director by the end of this month.
