During the meeting, the board members voted to reappoint Adam Moseley as the BOE’s president and voted to reappoint Derek Henderson as the board’s vice president.

Moseley and Henderson began serving as board president and vice president, respectively, in May 2013.

During the May 18 meeting, both men were the only nominations for the two positions, and both were elected 4-0 by their fellow School Board members. Board member John Myrick was absent from the meeting.

Before Moseley became president in 2013, Melanie Shores, who stepped down from the board in March 2013 citing health reasons, served as president. School Board member Ty Quarles served as the vice president before Henderson was elected to the seat in 2013.

“I’d like to congratulate both of you for your nominations and thank you for your service,” Alabaster School Superintendent Dr. Wayne Vickers said after the elections.
