From Stephanie Stuart:
Champaign resident Scott MacAdam has stepped down from his position on the Champaign Unit 4 School District Board of Education. On January 13, MacAdam submitted his resignation to Board President Laurie Bonnett and Superintendent Dr. Judy Wiegand. MacAdam states that he is stepping down from his position due to heart-related health issues.
“My resignation comes after a good deal of thought,” said MacAdam. “This comes at a very challenging time given all the work being done by our Board. I fully support the current efforts and decisions of the Board in its process concerning the new high school and related issues. I regret that I can’t be part of the ongoing plans and proposals, but wish the Board and District the very best of luck going forward.”
Superintendent Dr. Judy Wiegand said the District will work closely with the Regional Office of Education to fill the open seat until the next election in April 2015.
