HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — The Huntsville City Council on Thursday voted to appoint Ryan Renaud to the District 4 seat on the Huntsville City Schools Board of Education.

The seat was left vacant when Walker McGinnis resigned from the board, citing health issues.

“We are grateful to all the applicants who expressed a desire to serve our community. Each one brought a unique set of skills and experience,” City Council President Jennie Robinson said. “We wish Mr. Renaud much success in his service on the Board of Education and look forward to working together to make our schools and community even better.” 

Huntsville City Schools says Renaud is a mortgage loan originator for Trustmark Bank and a Huntsville High School graduate. Renaud studied political science, international relations and criminal justice at the University of Alabama.

Renaud was one of five candidates who interviewed for the position.

“I look forward to working with our new school board member for the betterment of the students and schools of District 4 and of the community,” said District 4 Council Member Bill Kling.
