Vacancy Filled
New Trustee Approved

Southwest Allen County School Board approved candidate Doug Copley as the new Trustee for the district at the December 1, 2021 board meeting. 

Copley was one of four finalists to be considered for the vacant seat following former trustee Tom Rhoades' resignation on November 5 after a residency relocation outside the district negated his ability to serve the remainder of his term.

"I am very humbled to be selected," Copley commented after receiving a unanimous four votes at the meeting. 

Copley, an Aboite Township resident has been a part of the SACS district for more than 30 years. Both of his sons are Homestead graduates and his wife taught special education in the district for 10 years. 

Copley was sworn in on Thursday, December 2. He will serve the remainder of Rhoades' term equating to just over a year.
