SK School Board Member Resigns

Chuck Mayhew, vice president of the South Kitsap School District Board of Directors, announced at Wednesday’s board meeting he is resigning.
I’m awaiting a call back from Mayhew, but board president Patty Henderson today said Mayhew’s decision is related to a career change, and that there are no hard feelings on any front.
Mayhew’s new commitments leave him without the time required to attend to board activities, said Henderson. The short notice she said was “totally understandable.”
Mayhew was elected to the board in November, 2005. He has lived in Port Orchard since 1999 and has five children, three of whom attend SK schools.
Mayhew is a former civil engineer for what is now West Sound Utility District. He most recently has worked for Stan Palmer Construction. Henderson said she believes he is going into business for himself,
The remaining board members must appoint a replacement for Mayhew, whose term expires in 2009.
Henderson said qualifications for serving on the board include “open-mindedness” and a commitment to teamwork. Anyone, with or without children in the district, is eligible to apply as long as they have the necessary enthusiasm, said Henderson, who as president spends 10 to 20 hours a week on board activities.
“We really, really encourage anyone who’s interested, even if they don’t think they could do it, because it really is a great experience,” Henderson said.
Potential applicants should contact the district office at (360) 874-7000 or via the Web site at
