Trustee Robyn Kingston has resigned her seat on the Board of Education.
Juanita Petty, board secretary and the district’s business administrator, announced Kingston’s resignation at the board meeting Thursday.
The resignation was effective Wednesday.
Rumors of such a move by Kingston were swirling for months. It is expected Kingston will move to Texas where her husband has been working.
Kingston did not return a message Thursday night seeking comment.
Kingston, a former co-president of the Wayne Council of Parent Teacher Organizations, was elected to the board in 2011.
Trustee and Second Vice President Laura Stinziano campaigned with Kingston.
“Robyn was an asset to every trustee on this board and the board is truly going to miss her,” Stinziano said. “She was always professional. She will be missed.”
Petty said the board would begin interviewing candidates to replace Kingston soon.
Petty said the board hopes to appoint someone to fill the position by the board's Feb. 21 meeting. That person may choose to run for a one-year unexpired term in November and for a full three-year term in 2014.
