Corsicana — The Corsicana Independent School Board of Trustees chose to appoint Jason Sodd at a special noon board meeting Friday to replace Kerri Donica, who resigned about a month ago.

Currently, Sodd has no opponent in the May 10 election, and filing ends at 5 p.m. Friday.

If no one files, then Sodd will retain the seat for the next two years.

When she resigned, Donica said that her intent for quitting so early was to give the new board member a head start in getting used to the work before May.

Leah Blackard, who is also on the board, has filed for reelection to her seat and she is being opposed by challenger Rick Newton.
