Ferndale School Board member Troy Clark has resigned from the Ferndale School Board, effective immediately.
His resignation letter was read by board president Lee Anne Riddle during a meeting Thursday night, Aug. 25.
Clark resigned due to increased workload with his job with Grocery Outlet chain; he and his wife have been the operators of the Bellingham Grocery Outlet since 1993.
Clark was elected to the Position #5 seat in November 2009. His term was scheduled to be up in 2013.
Since Clark left mid-term, the remaining school board members are required to appoint someone to his position within 90 days. The school district will have application information and a timeline available some time next week. With past resignations, the board has collected applications from candidates who live within the required school district and school board position boundaries, and then interviewed those candidates.
