Three school board members elected to the Elizabethton Board of Education Nov. 6 were sworn in Wednesday afternoon.
Incumbent Rita Booher and newcomers Phil Isaacs and Grover May all took their oaths of office during a short ceremony at noon in city hall.
Isaacs received the most votes with 2,291, or 22.23 percent.
Booher came in second with 1,991 votes, or 19.32 percent, and May secured the third seat with 1,736 votes, or 16.84 percent.
