by Judy Stringer

The Hudson Board of Education unanimously appointed Laura Jones to fill the seat left vacant by David Zuro, who announced his resignation in July. Jones was selected out of 18 applicants and four people interviewed for the position, according to a press release.

“Laura has been a passionate advocate for our students and the entire Hudson community for the past 15-plus years,” board President Steve DiMauro said in the release. “She emerged as the most qualified and deserving applicant, and she will be a fantastic addition to the board. Laura understands the importance of serving the needs of all students, families and the community at large, while listening to the perspectives and points of view of all stakeholders.”

Jones has served in leadership roles with Hudson Community First, Hudson VIP, Hudson School Foundation, Hudson Public Schools Endowment Fund, Hudson PTO and other volunteer organizations within the community.

She will hold the seat until at least Jan. 1, 2025. An election for the seat will be held in November 2024. ∞
