School board narrows vacant trustee position to four candidates


The Washoe County School Board of Trustees today, during a special meeting, narrowed candidates to four people who applied to replace former Trustee Jacquelyn Calvert.

Calvert resigned in September after it was revealed she no longer lived in the district she was elected to serve. An investigation, released yesterday, shows two school district staff were aware she changed her address in 2019.

The four applicants chosen by the board to proceed to another hearing are: Jack Heinemann, Elvira Diaz, John Gwaltny and Adam Mayberry. 

The four candidates will be interviewed Nov. 9, 2021 at another special meeting by the school board.

CORRECTION: The date originally reported for the next special meeting was incorrect. The correct date is Nov. 9.
