PASO ROBLES – It was announced at last night’s Paso Robles Joint Unified School District meeting that Dave Lambert, Board Clerk and trustee since 2012, resigned his position on the school board effective immediately.
“He’s contributed greatly, and he’s contributed much with his work with the students and the parents of our students and he will be greatly missed,” said Board Trustee Kathleen Hall.
Board Member Tim Gearhart said, “I worked with him for years and I think he was a valuable asset.”
Board President Field Gibson also had good things to say about Lambert.
“He and I have served on, I can’t even tell you how many committees, how many boards, but sometimes family and health are more important and I respect his decision,” Gibson said. “He was a valuable member of this board. He was a valuable member of every board we’ve been on. He’s a hard worker and I want to publicly give a shout out to my friend for the 20 plus years that I have personally known all the work that he’s done with kids and youth in our town and I wish him well.”
“I always appreciated everything Dave had to offer,” Board Trustee Joan Summers said. “He was very devoted to the kids — a great man. I wish him all the best.”
The board is awaiting word from legal counsel on how to move forward to fill the vacant spot and may possibly hold an emergency meeting before the next school board meeting on Sept. 26.
