Prows was selected and sworn in at the Aug. 4 meeting of the Board. She will serve out the remainder of the current term, which ends Dec. 31 of this year. 

She is the Executive Director of The Training Center, an academic enrichment program offering support for local students. She earned her bachelor's degree in Management and a Master's of Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University.

“As a member of the Marion School Board, my goal is to be an advocate and voice for families, children and other stakeholders in the community regarding the education of the precious treasure entrusted to us,” Prows said. “I want to be fiscally responsible for the funds available for students and staff, to be a conduit for community partnerships, and continue to empower students for the purpose they were created to be.”

The District III seat is one of three on the MCS School Board up for election this fall. The others are the District II seat and one of the at-large seats. You can view more detail about the districts here.

Anyone who is interested in running for election to one of these seats must file a CAN-34 and and a CAN-12 form with the Elections Office at the Grant County Courthouse by noon Aug. 21. (Both forms are available here.)
