A former Greenville City Council member has been appointed to the Pitt County Board of Education. Mildred Council was unanimously appointed to the 1-A seat.
The school board was looking to fill the seat after the death of school board member Matthew Ward in January.
Council served for many years on the Greenville City Council until she was defeated in 2009 by Kandie Smith.
Council will be sworn in at a later meeting and will serve until December 2014.
