FAIRFIELD — Katherine Hill is the newest member of the Solano County Board of Education.
The board on Wednesday named Hill to fill the 7th Trustee Area seat vacated by Rozzana Verder-Aliga. Verder-Aliga resigned effective Jan. 7 after being elected to the Vallejo City Council.
Board members interviewed Hill at the meeting. She has a master’s degree in social work, coaches a girls softball team and coordinates community outreach activities, a board press release said.
“I am committed to education, as I was instilled with the value that education is the making of one’s integrity,” Hill wrote on her application.
She will serve until the Nov. 4 election. Whoever is elected to the post in the election will serve the remainder of the term, which expires in November 2016.
