School Board re-elects Hornberger, Turgeon to leadership positions
School Board Chair Eric Hornberger (Ashburn) and Vice Chair Jill Turgeon (Blue Ridge) were re-elected to their leadership positions unanimously at the organizational meeting Jan. 2.
The two were elected to their first terms on the board November 2011 and were appointed to the leadership positions after their swearing in.
Hornberger ran against four other candidates for School Board with the slogan of “keeping kids and communities first.”
He was re-elected to the chair position 7-0-2 (Bill Fox and Thomas Reed not present). Turgeon was re-elected 8-0-1 (Reed not present).
He recently led the board through an attendance rezoning process in Ashburn for Moorefield Station and Discovery elementary schools, proposing several attendance plans. He co-authored the plan that was adopted, Plan 7, with School Board member Kevin Kuesters (Broad Run).
Turgeon was a second grade teacher at Cool Springs Elementary School in Leesburg before her election to the board.
She also proposed multiple plans to redistrict attendance zones, some of which fell in her district.
Committee appointments were held off until the board’s next business meeting, Jan. 8., to give board members the opportunity to make recommendations or ask for changes in their assignments, Hornberger said.
