(Waynesville)–Janice Dye of Waynesville was sworn in as a member of the Waynesville School District Board of Education Tuesday night, following the board’s vote to have Dye fulfill the vacancy created by Janet Crider’s resignation. “We appreciate Janet’s service, but unfortunately she has taken a new job and is unable to fulfill her term,” says Board President Paul Shultz. “Mrs. Dye has been a pillar of our community and in education for decades. Her knowledge of our area and the field of education will be a tremendous asset to our district over the course of the next year.”
Dye will serve through April 2021, when the position will be filled through election. Dye is a Waynesville High School graduate whose service to the district includes nearly three decades as a teacher, assistant principal, and administrator in the Waynesville R-VI School District.
