ELIZABETH – At the June 7 meeting of the Elizabeth Board of Education, Fernando Nazco was appointed to serve as the school board president.
Nazco, who has been a member of the Elizabeth Board of Education since 2007 and served as vice president since April 2011, assumed the duties of board president at the monthly meeting after he was unanimously supported by members of the board.
“As this school year comes to a close, I want to say how proud I am of the many accomplishments which have been achieved by the Elizabeth Board of Education,” said Nazco, a local business owner. “I have witnessed the positive progression of our schools over the last few years, with our students and team members receiving state and national acclaim. We will continue to work diligently in the unwavering belief that all students can learn and achieve at the highest levels.”
Nazco is the parent of children who attend the Elizabeth Public school system. He succeeds former board President Marie Lynn Munn, who is still listed as a member of the school board on the district’s web site. A state grand jury indicted Munn on May 30 for allegedly filing false applications for her children to be enrolled in a federal program that provides free and reduced cost lunches to school children from low income families.
John Donoso, who was elected to the board in April of 2010 will serve as vice president. It is the first time that he has served in that role.
