Dennis Wells, a York school board member for the past two years, has resigned from the school board, citing personal reasons.

Wells was appointed by the board to fill a vacant Seat 5 in October 2014. The term expires this year.

Seat 5 represents a large rural area in the western part of the district, including the McConnells area.

Wells could not be reached for immediate comment.

Wells is a retired human resource director at Duke Energy in Charlotte. He has a bachelor of science degree from Livingstone College. He is a longtime resident of York and a graduate of Jefferson High School.

Superintendent Vernon Prosser praised Wells’ service, saying “his guidance and reflection during our meetings has been invaluable to our board. He has always been a proponent of public schools, and his participation in the leadership of this district will be valued for years to come.”
