Hudson appointed to fill vacant school board seat

The Fayetteville Board of Education on Thursday voted to appoint Ivone Hudson to fill a vacant seat on the school board.

Hudson, who served as the founding president of the John L. Colbert Middle School PTO, was appointed to replace at-large member Megan Tullock, who resigned last month.

“I’m extremely honored and excited for the opportunity to serve Fayetteville Public Schools in this capacity and for the opportunity to give back to my community,” Hudson said in a press release issued Friday. “I’m looking forward to working with Dr Mulford and his team, as well as my colleagues on the board, to continue to improve our school district and make it even better.”

Hudson holds a bachelors degree in elementary education from the University of Arkansas. She currently teaches Spanish Club at Washington Elementary School. She also served as a Spanish teacher at Fayetteville Creative School.

Hudson’s term will run through 2025, when the next scheduled school election will take place, where she would need to be elected to continue to serve.
