The search is over. The Harrisonburg City School Board has named Susan Fitch as its newest member. Fitch will be finishing Jean Gearing's term. Gearing resigned after announcing she was moving to Rockingham County.
Fitch has children in the school system and says she's always been involved in the city schools. She says it's an exciting time and is ready to tackle the big issues of the high school construction, K-8 configuration and funding challenges.
