Three vie for school board appointment in Forest Grove

Former City Councilor Herb Drew submits his application Tuesday

A former Forest Grove city councilor is among three applicants vying for an appointment to the Forest Grove School Board.

Herb Drew, who applied shortly before Tuesday's 5 p.m. deadline, joins Alisa Hampton and Elliot Howard. The trio will be interviewed by four members of the school board who will recommend a replacement for Shawn Vilhauer, who is stepping down.

The appointment will be announced by the board on April 28 and last one year. After that, the appointee will have to seek election to a new, four-year term on the board.
