The Spartanburg District Five Board of Trustees is welcoming two new members! Following an application process, the Board of Trustees appointed Kevin Goode and Derek Watchorn to fill seats in District 5-2 and District 5-3, respectively. Goode will fill a seat in District 5-2, left unfilled in the November election. Watchorn will serve the remainder of an unexpired term in District 5-3, following the sudden passing of former board member, Jeff Proper.
Both men are District Five parents and local volunteers who say they want to see the district build on its success, and continue to increase student achievement. Both Goode and Watchorn also recognized the district's growth, and are eager to help lead the district through this exciting time.
Watchorn will serve through the remainder of his term, which expires in 2023. Goode will serve through 2025.
Both of the newly appointed board members will be officially sworn in on December 10.
