Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter has announced a vacancy on the Congress Elementary School District Governing Board. The opening was originally created due to the resignation of Board Member Brenda Newell, who did not provide a reason for her departure.  As a result, Superintendent Carter announced the position being open for applicants and two well qualified candidates came forward. Following the selection process, Mrs. Cindy Moralez was selected and when offered the position, she accepted.
