Shawnee Board of Education interviewed four candidates for their vacant Ward 5 seat at their Tuesday night meeting.
The four candidates included Judy Chance, Cynthia Gates, Terry Muller, and Gerry Pfeil.
After spending more than two hours interviewing each candidate, the board voted unanimously to elect Gerry Pfeil to the position.
Pfeil was sworn in, and will remain in the position until the next election.
The office was left vacant after Kay Hawkins resigned to move closer to family at the August Board of Education meeting.
