Vice President Larry Knox informed the school board and superintendent last night of his immediate resignation from the Affton Board of Education.
“It has been an honor to serve this district and the Affton community for over seven years. The accomplishments that Affton School District has achieved in this time are impressive, and the extraordinary efforts and dedication of leadership, teachers and staff at all levels is to be highly commended,” said Knox. “Although the district still has my full support, my work commitments aren’t allowing enough time for me to continue giving my all to the Board. I feel it is best to step aside so the position can be filled by someone who can dedicate their full attention and bring a fresh perspective.”
“Larry has been, and will continue to be, a strong supporter of our students, teachers, staff and the district,” said Dr. Steve Brotherton, superintendent. “His experience, coupled with his passion for the Affton community, has made him an invaluable member of our board.”
At their next meeting on April 4, the Board of Education will announce the requirements and application process for community members who wish to fill the seat vacated by Knox for the remainder of his term.
