State officials announced on Friday that 74-year-old Patricia Timm, of Beatrice, is leaving the board after 17 years.
Timm was first appointed to represent a large southeastern segment of the state in 2004 by then-Gov. Mike Johanns. Since then, she has twice served as board president. Before joining the state board, Timm had served on the Beatrice School Board for 16 years. She is a retired kindergarten and art teacher.
Gov. Pete Ricketts will appoint a new board member to represent District 5 for the remainder of Timm’s term, which expires in January 2023.
