DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Sioux City high school student has been appointed to the Iowa Board of Education.
Gov. Terry Branstad said in a news release Monday that he has appointed Hannah Rens as the non-voting student member on the board.
Rens, a sophomore at Sioux City East High School, will serve for two years. Her term begins May 1 and runs through the end of April 2016. She replaces a graduating Iowa City high school student.
Branstad's appointment is not subject to Senate confirmation. The Iowa Board of Education works with the state Department of Education.
