Cunningham appointed as CMC trustee
Steamboat Springs School District Superintendent Shalee Cunningham was appointed Monday to a four-year term on Colorado Mountain College’s Board of Trustees.
Cunningham was appointed in August to fill the remainder of longtime CMC supporter Benita Bristol’s term. Bristol stepped down for health reasons and died shortly after.
The board seat representing parts of Routt County, including Steamboat, was up for election in November, but no candidate filed to run. So Cunningham accepted the nomination and was sworn in at last week’s meeting.
“I am very much looking forward to it,” she said. “We are all working hard to have a K-14 relationship in the community. I think that could enhance that.”
The Board of Trustees has seven at-large seats representing counties including Eagle, Lake, Pitkin, Routt and Summit. The board also includes a representative from East Garfield and West Garfield County.
