Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter is pleased to announce the appointment of Vivian Perry to the Mayer Unified School District Governing Board.

This vacancy was due to the resignation of Board Member Heather Hutchins, who did not identify a reason for her resignation. We greatly appreciate the service Ms. Hutchins provided to the school and the community.

 Due to the fact that the resignation occurred during an election cycle, Superintendent Carter held the position vacant until the election process could yield a successor. There were two qualified non-incumbent candidates for the seat, Vivian Perry and Becky Young. In consulting with both candidates, it was determined that Ms. Young preferred to wait until January 1, 2023 to take the seat for which she was selected due to time conflicts in the intervening period. Ms. Perry was willing to start the term early and take this interim appointment through December 31, 2022 and then begin the term for which she was selected on January 1, 2023.

Superintendent Carter stated, “It was nice that the election process made the selection in this case”. Ms. Perry will do well and the fact that she was willing to begin her service early is greatly appreciated”. The appointment will be effective upon taking the oath of office and will expire on December 31, 2022.
