Newest SCS board member becomes official

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - The newest member of the Shelby County School board is officially on board.

Shante Avant took the oath of office one hour before her first business meeting Tuesday.

Avant, who works for the Women's Foundation, was appointed last week by the Shelby County Commission to fill the unexpired term of Reginald Porter.

He took a job in the superintendent's cabinet.

Avant will serve through the August 2014 school board elections.

"I'm rolling up my sleeves," said Avant. "Rolling up my sleeves to do my best service and hopefully add value to the process."
