Kristy Carey views her appointment to the Harrison County Board of Education as bittersweet.
Carey will be filling the unexpired term of Joe England, who died earlier this year.
"I had great respect for Joe," Carey said Tuesday afternoon. "He had so much knowledge of education."
Carey, whose appointment was announced by state Commissioner of Education Jon Draud on Friday, will have to resign from her parent representation on the high school site based council before being sworn in to the school board.
