The Roaring Fork School District swore in two new board members Wednesday and elected new board officers.

Karl Hanlon and Mary Elizabeth Geiger were appointed to the board to take over the terms of members who resigned.

The newly appointed board members will serve for one year. Their terms will be up for election in November 2015. Hanlon lives near Carbondale and will represent District A on the board. Geiger is from Glenwood Springs and will represent District C.

Both Hanlon and Geiger are attorneys in Glenwood Springs. They both have children in the district’s schools.

In other action Wednesday, Daniel Briggs was elected the new board president. He has been on the board for three years and takes over for Matt Hamilton, a three-year veteran of the board who became secretary-treasurer. Bob Johnson, a 10-year member of the board, was appointed vice president.
