In a special meeting Tuesday, the Pearland ISD school board appointed former Trustee Pam Boegler to serve out the term of Trustee Virgil Gant.
A longtime member of the board, Gant was killed in an auto accident June 26 while traveling with his family near Ozona, Texas.
According to board policy, if a vacancy occurs, remaining board members may fill the vacancy by appointment until the next trustee election.
Boegler previously served on the board from 2010-16.
Also during the special meeting, the board approved naming PACE Principal John Palombo as principal at Pearland High.
