Engstrom named to South Whidbey school board post

Jill Engstrom, a longtime schools advocate, is the newest member of the South Whidbey School District board of directors.

She was chosen from among six candidates Tuesday to fill the at-large position vacated by Helen Price Johnson, who resigned after being elected Island County Commissioner.

Engstrom, 51, of Clinton, a registered nurse who has lived in the district for 17 years, has volunteered with the district for 11 years, and has been PTA president at all three schools.

Her daughter, Kelsey, and son, Jackson, attend South Whidbey High School. Her husband, Kevin, a mortgage broker, was a candidate for the previous opening on the school board.

She was selected by the other board members late Tuesday afternoon after all six candidates were interviewed.
