Veteran School Committee member Beverley Griffin Dunne returns to a leadership position on the committee this year, following a unanimous vote by her colleagues Tuesday night.
Jarrod Hochman nominated Dunne, who has spent a decade on the elected board, saying he felt privileged to serve alongside her, and added that he has great admiration for Dunne. Tom Rossignoll served as Vice-Chair for 2012.
"It's been a while since I've served as Vice-Chair," Dunne said, thanking her fellow committee members. She said she was honored by the decision.
It's also an election year times two for Dunne -- she is running for State Representative in a special election this spring and come fall, she may be running to keep her School Committee seat if she's not on Beacon Hill.
Rossignoll and Hochman will also be up for re-election in the fall, both for second four-year terms.
Hochman, who served as Secretary for the board in 2012, also nominated Ed Charest to take his place this year, which was followed by another unanimous vote.
"You don't want me to make a speech too, do you?" Charest said, smiling.
"Congratulations to you both. I think we're looking forward to another productive year," said Mayor Ted Bettencourt, who chairs the committee.
