The Clark County School Board today unanimously appointed Stavan Corbett to fill a vacancy on the seven-member board.
Corbett, who has served on the Nevada Board of Education since 2010, said he plans to resign from his post to represent District D, which encompasses the central Las Vegas Valley and has nearly 49,000 students feeding into Clark, Desert Pines, Rancho, Silverado and Valley high schools.
The School Board’s six members unanimously chose Corbett, who’s Hispanic, after interviewing four applicants to fill the board seat vacated by Lorraine Alderman on Oct. 23. She resigned with six days’ notice and little explanation. Corbett, 39, will finish Alderman’s term ending December 2014.
