The USD 480 school board met Monday night and appointed a new school board member. The board appointed Stewart Cauble who takes the vacated board position of Tami Sutherland-Abbott. The Liberal native's term lasts one year and ends in June. Matt Durler also joined the board recently to replace Crystal Clemens. His term will also last one year. When voters go to the polls in April, they will be voting for board members for five of the seven spots on the board.
