Scott Clark was one of six applicants to fill the unexpired term of Carrie O’Neal, who resigned her seat because she was moving to Hamilton. He will have to run in November 2021 to finish O’Neal’s term, which ends Dec. 31, 2023.

“The board of education is eager to begin to work with Scott. He brings vast leadership experience from a variety of Fairfield community organizations,’’ said board President Michael Berding.

Clark serves as the president of the Rotary Club of Fairfield, is a member of the district’s Business Advisory Council and vice president of both non-profits Dougie & Rays’s and the Fairfield Prevention Coalition.

“For me, it’s all about the kids. We have a great district with excellent leadership,” Clark said.

“I am honored to work alongside the other board members and with Superintendent Billy Smith and his team. I just want to serve this district and do what’s best for kids.”

A resident of Fairfield for the past 17 years, Clark and his wife, Lori, have three children attending Fairfield schools.

“Scott’s extensive volunteer work with our students shows his passion for helping children from all backgrounds,” Berding said.

“Scott is a person with great integrity and is well-respected in the Fairfield and Fairfield Township communities. He is very intelligent and he should have no problem getting up to speed on all the items the board is currently working on.”

Following the vote selecting him for the board, Clark will be sworn into office and take his seat on the board. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., in
