Craig Resigns From School Board
John Craig, vice president of the Crawford County R-1 School Board, has resigned his position.
Craig announced during the Aug. 27 meeting that it would be his last as his family was moving out of the district.
The resignation was to take effect Sept. 4.
First elected in 2016, Craig won re-election in 2019. In 2020, he became vice president of the Missouri School Boards Association.
As of this publication, the school district has not announced when it will interview candidates for Craig’s replacement.
Craig is the fourth member to resign from the board in the last two years.
Scott Blue resigned in April 2018 due to moving out of the district. He was replaced by former board member Darrel Bosse, who had lost reelection that month by two votes.
Sean Kaysinger defeated Bosse a year later.
In July 2019, Ron Collins and Justin Blanton resigned. Collins also left the district while Blanton became an employee, working in the bus garage.
Suzanne Louderman and Andrew Graddy were appointed to the board to fill those vacancies.
Louderman was one of three candidates to win a three-year term to the board on June 2, 2020.
Graddy won a one-year term by defeating Paul Sappington.
