By: Michael R. Smith
Four candidates have filed for two positions on the Francis Howell School District (FHSD) Board of Education. Voters will choose the board members in the April 2 election.
The four are Dr. Cynthia Bice, Robert Faltisek, Amy McEvoy, and Tony Yakich.
Bice and McEvoy currently serve on the board. Members serve three-year terms.
Bice is dean of the School of Education at Lindenwood University. She is completing her first term on the FHSD school board.
McEvoy works for Maplewood Richmond Heights High School in its Missouri Options program. The program helps students complete high school who are at-risk for failing to graduate. She is also the treasurer of the school board and is completing her first term with the district.
Faltisek is a driver supervisor for Cardinal Health. He has two sons – one of which graduated in the district last year and another who is a sixth-grade student at Barnwell Middle School.
Yakich – a 2005 graduate of Francis Howell North High School- is an administrative assistant in the Missouri Career Center in St. Peters, a state agency that aids job seekers.
A fifth candidate, Chad Lange, has withdrawn from the race.
