Manchester BOE member resigns, replacement sought

LeAnn Nichols
NEW FRANKLIN — LeAnn Nichols, a Manchester Local School District Board of Education member, resigned from her position April 1, according to district Superintendent Sam Reynolds.

Reynolds stated Nichols is moving out of the Manchester Local Schools area and resigned with deep regret.

Nichols and her husband, Ron, raised three daughters, who attended Manchester Local Schools, and now have grandchildren attending schools in the district, according to Reynolds.

Reynolds said the board appreciates her family’s many years of service to the district. She served on the board for six years, according to Reynolds.

The board is seeking qualified and interested candidates to fill the remainder of Nichols’ term, which expires at the end of the year. The seat is up for election in the Nov. 5 General Election.

Anyone interested in being appointed for the remainder of this year is asked to submit a dated letter of request and a résumé to: Richard Sponseller, board president, 6075 Manchester Road, Akron, OH 44319.

The submissions are due by today, April 12.

Board members will review the applicants and vote on Nichols’ replacement, and all applicants will be contacted regarding the final decision, according to Reynolds.
