CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has filled two vacancies on the West Virginia Board of Education.

Tomblin announced the appointments of Dr. James S. Wilson and Beverly E. Kingery on Wednesday in a news release. Their appointments are effective immediately.

Wilson is a dentist who served on the Marshall County school board for 20 years. He replaces Bob Dunlevy, whose term expired Nov. 4, 2014.

Kingery served as Nicholas County’s schools superintendent from 2007 until she retired in 2014. She previously served at the West Virginia Department of Education as a K-12 coordinator and director of the Reading First Project. She also was a teacher and principal in Boone County.

Kingery replaces Priscilla Haden, who resigned in 2012 following the firing of former state Schools Superintendent Jorea Marple.
