Two school board slots likely to be filled this week

Anne Arundel County students, teachers and parents are likely to learn this week whom Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has tapped to fill two slots on the county school board.

Selections are traditionally made by July 1, but the governor's office last week delayed an announcement. The school board is scheduled to meet Wednesday. Members must be sworn in before serving.

A nominating convention last month backed Pamela K. Bukowski, a parent and part-time Annapolis High School teacher, and current board President Edward P. Carey for the slots.

The name of Arnold aviation executive Enrique M. Melendez was also submitted to Ehrlich.
