Hamtramck has a new School Boardmember.
And she one of Hamtramck’s own.
On Tuesday evening, the board interviewed six candidates via teleconference.
After the interviews concluded, it didn’t take long for the board to reach a consensus and appoint Daz’Shavon Hall, who has been a substitute teacher in the district and an employee with the district’s recreation department.
She has a degree in criminal justice from Wayne State University.
Hall, 28, is the third African-American to sit on the board, following Yvonne Myrick and Titus Walters.
In her interview, Hall told the board that her role as a boardmember is “to be here, and be able to give feedback.”
Hall fills the seat vacated by Maggie Srodek, who resigned a few weeks ago. Srodek said she has too many other obligations to take care of, and can’t spare the time to be on the board.
Srodek’s term still has over four years remaining. Hall will fill the seat through December.
Srodek’s seat will be included in the upcoming November election.
