Among the board members, Livak is the only remaining trustee and will now lead the board as its 2011 president.

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; At long last, the school district’s five-member board has been assembled.

Rounding out the final spot on the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District board, Randall W. Hill, member of Tahoe Forest Hospital Foundation’s Board of Directors, will take over for Area 3 Trustee Kristy Olk, who announced her resignation last month after she began a new job working for the Resort at Squaw Creek.

At the district’s board meeting on Wednesday, Hill’s fellow and newly elected trustees, Kim Szczurek, Area 1; Dianna Driller, Area 5; and Gaylan Larson, Area 4, were officially sworn into office, while remaining board member Kirsten Livak, Area 2, was elected the new president by the board for her past experience.

Hill has more than 30 years in business experience, as he’s worked in human resources for seeking out executive management for companies and nonprofit organizations.

His local experience includes joining Tahoe Forest Hospital Foundation’s Board of Directors in 2004 and serving as its president in 2007 and 2008. Hill was also appointed chair of the $98.5 million YES on Measure C campaign, creating new facilities for the hospital including the new cancer center, currently under construction.

Before trustees unanimously appointed Hill, he was interviewed with three other community members applying for the position.

Below are a few of Hills answers to questions posed to him by the board.
