members selected Mike Hawkins for board president by unanimous ballot Monday night at the 2012 Board of Education organizational meeting.
Hawkins, 34, has been a school board member for four years. He was recently reelected in November when he ran unopposed.
Hawkins has been a officer for over ten years and recently became a handler in the K-9 division.
Hawkins said he wants to keep things moving in a positive direction for Trenton Public Schools and his first area of interest is a smooth transition for the new superintendent.
Other board members were selected for remaining positions on the board:
- Carol Oakley is now vice president
- Cristine Howe is now secretary
- Thomas Kinney is now Treasurer
Board members will hold the position for one year.
"We rotate the officers so everyone has an opportunity so nobody gets a strangle hold on any given position," Hawkins said.
