PUSD swears in new school board member

Mike Mangum gets sworn in on Jan. 10 via a Zoom call with Coconino Superintendent of Schools Cheryl Mango-Paget.

Mike Mangum was sworn in on Jan. 10 as a board member for the Page Unified School District. The swearing-in happened via Zoom call with Mangum in the District office on one end of the call and Cheryl Mango-Paget, Coconino County superintendent of schools, conducting the swearing-in on the other end of the Zoom call from her office in Flagstaff.

Mangum has been a resident of Page for nearly nine years. He and his wife, Jessica Mangum, have three kids. Two of their kids attend PUSD schools, and their youngest child will attend in the coming years when it reaches school age.

“I want to help bring change and betterment to the district, the schools and the staff,” Mangum said after the swearing in ceremony.

PUSD has had a vacancy in its school board since October, following the resignation of School Board President Bob Candelaria.
