The Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to reappoint Sue Dibble and Norman Sulser to the Hanover County School Board at their June 28 meeting.

Sulser has served on the School Board for 12 years and has taught at Hanover and Henrico County schools for 16 years.

“It’s been an honor to serve the last few years and I look forward to the next few,” Sulser said after the meeting. “We have a great school board family.”

Sulser is known for voicing his opinions, even if they are unpopular with other School Board members. The Cold Harbor representative is linked to the approval of the Advanced College Academy in Hanover, which was implemented this year, and the push to change Hanover from a 7-point to 10-point grading scale.

During his upcoming term, Sulser said he will focus on technology in Hanover County schools.

When the Supervisors heard nominations for School Board members during their May 24 meeting, Sulser was the only name nominated for the Cold Harbor district seat.

During the June 28 Board of Supervisors meeting, Cold Harbor supervisor outlined Sulser’s achievements on the School Board.

“In my opinion, I think that Mr. Sulser has served the citizens of Cold Harbor with dignity,” Wyatt said.

Dibble will be serving her second term as the South Anna district School Board member.

“It certainly is a wonderful honor to be given another opportunity to serve our fine citizens of Hanover County,” Dibble said after the meeting. “I’ve enjoyed the first four years and I certainly look forward to another four years.”

Two new candidates, Clara James Scott and Lakisha Greenhow, nominated themselves for the South Anna seat at the May Board of Supervisors meeting. Hazzard said that he met with each of the candidates, as well as the principals in the South Anna district, before making his final nomination.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do but I think we’ve got some great people in place,” Dibble said.
