R. Scott Reese and Jenny Hong are sworn in as members of the Blackfoot School Board Wednesday night by Clerk Margaret Contor. The two were elected in May. Hong said she is ready to get to work and she plans to promote transparency on the board and encourages members of the public to voice their concerns and praises of the district. Reese said he is incredibly thankful to his parents, who both have a long history in the Blackfoot School District, and said he is excited and is looking forward to the challenges ahead. The next board meeting will be July 28, when reorganization of the board will take place.
