Gunn appoints former Clinton Mayor Rosemary Aultman to Board of Education.


Former Clinton Mayor Rosemary Aultman has been appointed to the state Board of Education.

House Speaker Philip Gunn announced his appointment Monday. He said Aultman will serve as his recess appointment to the board through Dec. 31.

Aultman served as mayor in Clinton for 20 years. Gunn says he worked with Aultman while he served on the Clinton School Board.
