The longtime Auburn Enlarged City School District vice president is interested in taking the main post.
During a discussion at a board meeting Tuesday night on who was interested in taking on leadership roles, Kathleen Rhodes said she was planning to run for president at the July 2 reorganization meeting. She then asked if anyone else was going to run for president or vice president.
Rhodes has been board vice president for five years. Michael McCole served as president for four years and ran for another three-year term in May but lost to incumbents Kathleen Rhodes and Salvatore "Sam" Giangreco and newcomer Ian Phillips.
Board member Fred Cornelius said he had earlier sent a correspondence to board members that he was interested in a leadership position. He added he supports Rhodes as president and would be interested in serving as vice president. Cornelius had previously served two years on the board but left in 2009. He was appointed to the board in 2015 after former board member Andrew Roblee suddenly vacated his position.
