MABTON - Effective the end of this year, Angel Tovar will resign from his post on the Mabton School Board. Tovar's letter of resignation - which cited time and family commitments - was approved this past Monday night by the board.
"He's been a good member of our team," Chair Elsa Sanchez said in praising Tovar's contributions.
Tovar's resignation means that Mabton will start 2013 with just three school board members. The district is still seeking a replacement for Lupe Maldonado, who stepped down earlier this year.
Those interested and seeking information, such as residency requirements, about the school board seats can contact the Mabton School District business office at 894-4852.
