WELLS -- William Stuart has been appointed to the Wells Central School District Board of Education.

Stuart lives on Main Street. He and his wife, Sandy (Tortorello), have two children in the school.

Ken Hoffman was elected president for the school year and Cathie Rust vice president.

This school year's Shared Decision Making Team is Cindy Viacava, Ed Pruden, Alexandra Brenan, Samantha Zemken, Stephanie Hoffman, Debbie Abbott-Forgione, Kathleen Towers, Susan Chittenden and Jeremy Siddon.
