Phillips replaces Wendy Hobbs. Dianna Seaton takes over the role of vice-chair.

Serving most recently as vice-chair, Phillips has been a school trustee for nearly 20 years.

After six years as chair, multiple large-scale school building upgrades and the opening of two brand new high schools, Hobbs said she is looking forward to supporting the board as a trustee and spending more time with her family.
