The Board of Education is looking for a new member after District 9 representative Sunni Hilts stepped down after more than 12 years of service.

The seat would serve some schools off East End Road and across Kachemak Bay in Nanwalek, Port Graham and Seldovia, according to the district.

Applicants must apply by Dec. 27, and be at least 18 years old, and qualified parties will be interviewed Monday, Jan. 11, 2016, and sworn in during that evening’s meeting.

Applications are available through the school district’s website or in the main school district office.
