The Ponca City School Board filled the ward no. 5 seat.

Marvin Clark was elected after giving a short statement and interview at a special meeting Monday.

The board voted in executive session.

Clark said he served on Ponca City School Board of Education from 1996 to 2007.

He was born and raised in Ponca City and all of his children attended the Ponca City schools.

“I feel like my past experience on the board will allow me to get back on track quickly,” Clark said. “I went off the board in 2007 because I had to commute to Bartlesville everyday with my job. Now that I am retired, I have the time to devote to the board. I have very strong ties to this community and love Ponca City. I want to give back and help any way I can. I have always been know for wanting to do what is best for the kids, no matter how hard it is.”

Clark ran against Virginia Combirnk and Jerry Fowler.

He was sworn in at the regular meeting Monday and started fulfilling his duties as a board member.

He will serve on the board until February 2015.

In 2015 the position will be placed on the ballot for election to complete the unexpired term that runs through 2017.
