New District 210 Board of Education seated; Pam Driscoll remains as President


Lemont High School District 210's Board of Education officers for the next two years will include (clockwise, from top left) President Pam Driscoll, Vice President Mike Kardas and Secretary Mary Tally.

At its Organizational Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, April 30, Lemont High School District 210 seated its recently elected Board of Education members and also elected three individuals to two-year terms as officers.

Gary Gray, Renée Koehler, Beverly Marzec and Mary Tally all were sworn in after being reelected to four-year terms in early April. Marzec first joined the Board in 1991, Tally was first elected in 2011, Gray re-joined the Board for his second stint in 2013, and Koehler was first elected in 2015. They will serve on the seven-member Board of Education with Pam Driscoll, Mike Kardas and Mike Shackel, who were not up for reelection in 2019.

Along with the seating of the board members, the Board of Education elected three officers to two-year terms. One of only two female presidents in the board’s history, Driscoll will serve her second term as President. After three terms as Secretary, Kardas will serve his first term as Vice President. Tally will fulfill the role of Secretary for the first time.

Marzec, who served as the Board’s first female president from 2009-13, has served on the District 210 Board of Education for 28 years, which is just one year short of the longest tenure in board history. She first joined the board in 1991 and is the longest-tenured female in its history. At 16 years each, Driscoll and Gray are now tied for the 10th-longest tenures in board history.
