Pritchett to be Sworn in as School Board Member Thursday

The Rosemont PTA volunteer was elected in November.

The Sacramento City Unified School District Board of Trustees will have a Rosemont resident deciding on district issues as of Thursday.

PTA president Christina Pritchett, who defeated her two challengers in the November election by a nearly 15-point margin, will be sworn in at the start of this week's board meeting.

She'll represent Area 3, which also includes College Greens and parts of Rancho Cordova. Her election challengers were Mark Ambrose and Eric Sunderland.

Also scheduled to be sworn in are returning trustees Diana Rodriquez, Gustavo Arroyo and Patrick Kennedy. Kennedy handily defeated his challenger, while Arroyo and Rodriquez ran unopposed. 

The ceremony will take place shortly after the meeting's 6:30 p.m. start, and will be held at the Serna Center, 5735 47th Ave.

The following day, the school board will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m to consider applicants for trustee Area 1, which includes Land Park, midtown, downtown and other nearby areas. Current Area 1 Trustee Ellyn Bell is resigning to take a job in the Bay Area.

Way to go Christina! It was an honor to see you being sworn in both officially and unofficially (for ceremony purposes). I am proud to have you representing our school board. It was also good to see Donald Terry, who I also voted for, talking about his new venture as winning the seat for Rancho Cordova's City Council. I will post pic's in the photo area for those that are interested.
