HOOVER — The Hoover City Council unanimously appointed Dr. Ronald Braswell to an open seat on the Hoover Board of Education April 4.

Braswell was not present at the regularly scheduled city council meeting.


Braswell is a physician with Brookwood Ophthalmology.

When the Hoover City Council interviewed Braswell for the open seat on March 22, Braswell said he considered himself to be a good communicator.

“There’s a lot of stakeholders in our schools,” he said. “I can be an objective, unbiased decision-maker.”

Braswell was a member of the Grenada County (Miss.) School Board for four years before moving to Hoover.
