The Howard County Board of Education announced yesterday that Rosemarie Dennison, the former head of the Community Advisory Council, has been hired as the school system's second ombudsman.

Dennison, a Laurel resident whose son is enrolled in the school system, will work 24 hours a week and make $30,240 a year. She started the job Tuesday.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the community and the school system in this capacity," Dennison said in a statement. "Because of my involvement with the school system over the past 10 years, I have developed many positive relationships with staff and community members. I feel this will be a great asset in this position. I thank the board members for their confidence in me."

Dennison announced her resignation this week as chairman of the Community Advisory Council. She had held that position since 2006. Dennison joined the council, which was formerly known as the Citizens Advisory Committee, in 2004.

Dennison fills a vacancy left by Robin Shell, who resigned in June.
