Missouri Board Of Education Gets New Life With Two Appointments


    Missouri Governor Mike Parson Tuesday appointed two members to the State Board of Education, meaning the group will again have a quorum. after months of uncertainty.
    The board supervises Missouri public schools.
     Former Governor Eric Greitens had stacked the board with members willing to fire the education commissioner. The effort was successful, but the move angered lawmakers who later refused to confirm those board members, which left the board without enough members to meet since January..
    Parson appointed Peter Herschend and Carol Hallquist. Herschend is a former member of the education board and co-owns the company that runs Silver Dollar City. Hallquist retired as president of the Hallmark Corporate Foundation at Hallmark Cards Inc. and had previously been appointed by Greitens to the state Coordinating Board for Early Childhood.
    The board next meets on Thursday.
