Voting for seats on the Illinois High School Association Board of Directors and Legislative Commission closed at midnight on Friday, October 1, with the results being tallied and certified on Monday morning, October 3.

Rockridge High School Principal Katy Hasson, who has served as the Board President since 2019, won reelection to retain her seat on the Board. She will be joined by three new Board members following the retirement of Geneseo's Travis Mackey, term-limitation for District 230 Superintendent Robert Nolting, and John Baffico changing to a position at a new school.

Those three Board seat elections were won by Dunlap Principal Katie Cazalet (Division 4), Plainfield North Athletic Director Ron Lear (Division 3), and Kenwood Academy Principal Karen Calloway (Division 1), respectively.

The Board will elect its officers for the 2022-23 school term at its regular meeting on Wednesday, October 12.
