FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) —  Fort Wayne Community Schools Board of School Trustees is seeking applicants for the soon-to-be-open District 3 seat.

On Monday, Nov. 9, he announced at the meeting of the FWCS Board of School Trustees that he would step down effective Jan. 1, 2021, giving the Board time to fill the seat prior to the 4-year term starting.

Applicants must live within District 3 for at least one year, be at least 21 years old and be a registered voter.
