Applicants Sought To Fill Sonora High School Trustee Seat

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA – The Sonora Union High School District is seeking applicants to fill a vacancy on its governing board, and the deadline is fast approaching.

Today’s announcement follows the resignation of Trustee Nancy Scott, who vacated the seat on March 30, 2024, as she moved out of Trustee Area 1. First elected in 2018 and reelected in 2022, Trustee Scott served two years as Board President. Her term was to last until 2026.

“Known for her compassionate and collaborative spirit, Scott has been a steadfast advocate for student success,” shared school officials.

Scott is also the founder of Nancy’s Hope and was awarded the 2022 Irving J. Symons Award by the Sonora Area Foundation for her outstanding community service and leadership. Instead of holding a special election, a provisional replacement will fill the seat until the next school board election in November 2024.
