Chris Corder was named to the Seaside School District Board last Tuesday.
Along with retired teacher Chuck Mattocks, he was one of two to apply for the position of director for Zone 3, Position 1 in Gearhart.
Corder fills the seat after A.J. Wahl stepped down to serve as a county judge.
Corder is a local business owner who’s very active in the community and coaches youth sports, board president Brian Taylor said.
Board member Shannon Swedenborg pointed to Corder’s involvement with kids through the volunteer sports organization Seaside Kids. “He’s will to step up,” she said, “and I think that’s pretty important.”
Corder was unanimously selected by the board.
“I am looking forward to making a difference in the education experience for the students of the Seaside school system with the current administration and board members,” he said after the meeting.
