At our Annual Meeting on May 29, the Historical Society announced the results of our 2019 Trustee Elections. The following individuals have been elected to three-year terms on the Society’s Board of Trustees:
- Linda Blauhut (returning for a second term)
- Glenda Herl (returning for a second term)
- David Myers (returning for a second term)

- Charles Teague (returning for a second term)
Ken Carpenter finished his three-year term as a trustee and did not run for re-election.
In addition, our treasurer, Mohammad Shouman, resigned from his position effective May 21, 2019. The Board of Trustees selected Chris Wysokinski, a law clerk at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, to fill that position.
