New board member fills Director District No. 4 seat

Enrico (Rico) Figueroa has been appointed to the Adams 12 Five Star Schools Board of Education. Figueroa is a program manager for The Center for Relationship Education/The Colorado Healthy Marriage Project. He has worked and volunteered with students in various programs that provide tutoring and character development.  

He fills the Director District No. 4 seat which became open when Heidi Williams' resignation was accepted by the board on Nov. 16, 2011. Williams resigned after being elected Mayor of Thornton. The deadline for the board to appoint for the vacancy expired on Jan. 17. Since the board did not reach a majority consensus on filling the vacancy, state statute calls for the board president to appoint a person to fill the vacancy.

Figueroa will begin serving as the board member for Director District No. 4 at the board's regular meeting on Jan. 18.
