At the Board of Selectmen meeting last night by the split joint vote of the four then current School Committee members and the three selectmen Meghan Glenn, a former teacher, was elected to fill the open School Committee spot created by the resignation of Tim Bonfatti last month.
When there is an open position on a Town of Medfield board, that position is filled by the joint vote of the two boards.
Dr. Meredith Chamberland, who holds a doctorate, also agreed to be nominated. The town is fortunate to have two such well credentialed, knowledgeable candidates willing to serve on the School Committee (both have been active in school matters). Based on the responses by both Ms. Glenn and Dr. Chamberland to numerous questions last night, our town will be exceedingly well served if both continue their active participation in school matters going forward.
