When Coalinga Huron Unified School District board member Ray Zubiri resigned from the board last month, it was after serving the district as a board member for 21 years. In addition to that, he served the district and community in many capacities for many years. Since Zubiri’s resignation, CHUSD has been seeking candidates to fill his place until his term expires in November, 2022.
At this point, CHUSD has four candidates who have returned packets to be considered for this position. Those four are former board member, and retired teacher Johny Albrecht, Caroline Carlson, Tom Crawford, and Alejandra Stopppenbrink. All four will be interviewed by the school board and Superintendent Lori Villanueva.
Members of the community may attend via an internet virtual option. The address: www.https://www.crowdcast.io/Chusd-board.
