Lakota school board picks pastor, youth coach to fill vacant seat

Journal-News |

The governing board of Lakota Schools unanimously voted Monday evening to appoint Michael Pearl to fill an open seat on the board.

The Liberty Twp. resident — and former Lakota school parent of two graduates from the district — was chosen by the board among 50 applicants, said President Brad Lovell. The 46-year-old Pearl is the Pastor of New Day Baptist Church — and Director of The Saint Monica’s Recreational Center — both in the Hamilton County city of Lincoln Heights.
