LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Melinda Mangham is the newest member of the Lafayette Parish School Board.

The Advertiser reports (https://bit.ly/1wHKkng ) Mangham was appointed Monday to serve as the District 7 representative until Dec. 31. The board voted 7-1 in Mangham’s favor.

Mangham replaces Mark Cockerham, who resigned earlier this month after learning he has moved out of the current district boundaries.

In addressing the board, Mangham said she felt qualified for the position because of her years of experience as a teacher, as well as her work on dozens of local, state and national education committees.
