Tara Wolff appointed to Nevis School Board – Park Rapids Enterprise


Tara Wolff was appointed to fill the vacant seat on the Nevis School Board at Monday night’s meeting.

The other three applicants for the position who were interviewed July 20 were Dave McGee, Aimee Plumley and Marv Vredenburg.

“We had four excellent candidates, and it was tough to choose,” board chair Andy Lindow said.

The school board has the ability to appoint a replacement school board member when a vacancy occurs. The individual is appointed to fill the vacancy and to serve until a successor is elected in November.

The appointment becomes effective 30 days after the adoption of this resolution unless a valid petition to reject the appointee is filed with the school district clerk within that 30-day time period.

That means Wolff will officially become part of the board on Aug. 24. For that reason, the school board meeting scheduled for Monday, Aug. 22 was moved to Monday, Aug. 29 so she will be able to participate.

“The Wolff family has a long history of serving the Nevis school and community,” she said. “I am proud to continue that tradition through service on the school board. While the board serves an important function in providing governance of school operations, it also represents the community’s voice and must be responsive to the values and priorities of our local residents. In lending my voice as a member of the school board, I hope to contribute to the continued growth, improvement, and overall success of our students, staff, and community.”

Woff and her husband, Eric, have two children. Elin is 10 and August is 8. She is an attorney with a background in policy writing and implementation, contract drafting and negotiations, strategic planning and communications.
