Posted by on

Union Carpenter Mary Ann Cloherty wasn't elected on Tuesday, but last week she was appointed to serve on the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education Advisory Council on Vocational Technical Education.

According to the State Board of Education, the Advisory Council is one of several that were developed to ??advise the Commissioner and the Board on matters relevant to their areas of focus in the development of education reform in Massachusetts. Each council meets 4-6 times per year. Through diverse membership on each advisory council, the Commissioner and Board are able to draw on the perspectives and experience of a wide variety of constituents in order to strengthen public education.
