FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Northwest Allen County Schools Board has a new member.
The board voted this week to have Kristi Schlatter fill the vacant seat left behind by the death of John Hilger last month.
Hilger died after suffering a heart attack while on vacation. The 44-year-old Schlatter will serve the remainder of his term, which ends at the end of 2018, according to the News-Sentinel.
There were four candidates interviewed for the vacancy, but Schlatter was the only one nominated for a vote.
