The Sacramento County Board of Education provisionally appointed Thomaysa M. Glover as Trustee for Area 5 at its meeting on August 20. She fills the seat that was made vacant following the July 3 resignation of former Area 5 Trustee Penny Schwinn.

"The applicants for the Trustee Area 5 position included so many remarkable and inspiring community leaders. Their passion for education was evident and heartwarming and the decision was a difficult one," said Board of Education President Jacquelyn Levy. "I am confident that Mrs. Glover possesses all the attributes to make a positive difference for the students and families of Sacramento County and look forward to her joining the Board."
