Filing closes for school board seat

By Travis Jenkins

Two names, including one of the county’s most recognizable, will appear on the ballot for a special election to fill the unexpired term of Dr. Laurens Fort, who passed away last month.

Kena Funderburk, a senior compliance officer, filed the necessary paperwork to seek the District II opening. Also filing to run was long-time Great Falls resident John Smith. From 1969 until 2016, Smith was a teacher, coach and athletic director at Great Falls High School, where he set the state record for wins (943) and his teams won eight state championships.
