Powell and Maloney Elected to Reeds Spring School Board

REEDS SPRING, Mo -- Seven people were vying to fill two open seats on the Reeds Spring School Board Tuesday. 

With 91% of the votes counted, the winners are Joelene Powell and Jennifer Maloney.

The new board has a major task ahead: choosing a new superintendent to replace the controversial Michael Mason, who announced he's retiring next summer. 

Mason was accused of sexual harassment against a former employee. This resulted in a $500,000 settlement between the district and the plaintiff -- a former principal at the district.  

District Spokesperson Ben Fisher has said he hopes the new board will select a new superintendent by the end of 2018.
