The 39-year-old nurse stresses his continued commitment to improving the district’s educational system.
“Education is powerful, and, without it, you’re not going to be successful,” Parsons said.
Just making the deadline to choose a new member before a court judge would be legally required to, the board welcomes Parsons in place of President Eddie Corcino, who resigned under a month ago.
His resignation marks the third in a month’s time. The two other resigning members, Connie Finney and Brenda Newman, left due to transparency and ethical issues on the board.
“We can’t dwell on a bad decision in the past,” said Parsons, who did not readily admit the board had made a mistake. “It can’t define you.”
