Bea Isner, a retired educator, was appointed by the Jackson County Board of Education to fill the position vacated by former board president Bobbi Ferrell.

Serving as a school counselor from 1995-2016, Isner earned her bachelor’s degree in business education from Glenville State College, followed by a master’s degree in school counseling from Marshall University. She spent the majority of her career at Ripley High School, but also worked at Ravenswood Middle and Ripley Middle schools.

Isner said she is honored to be chosen to serve in this position.

“I look forward to supporting Jackson County schools as the newest board member,” she said.

Isner will serve until June 30, 2022, with the remainder of the unexpired term to be filled based on the May 2022 primary election. The winner of that election will serve from July 1, 2022-June 30, 2024.
