A new member joined the Oldham County Board of Education at Monday night’s meeting.

Anne Coorssen, the district’s general counsel, swore in Jennifer Beckner to finish the division five term vacated by former board member Jennifer Jones in September. 

Beckner, a former PTA president at La Grange Elementary, has a bachelor’s degree in counseling and rehabilitation and has worked for an adoption agency, youth homeless shelter and day care.

Beckner and her husband, Richard, moved to Oldham County in 2005. Their son attends La Grange Elementary.

The state education commissioner appointed Beckner to serve through 2012.
