A former county schools official has been appointed to the board of trustees for the Community College of Baltimore County, the school announced yesterday.
H. Scott Gehring, a former assistant superintendent for schools in the northwest area of the county, was appointed to a five-year term by Gov. Martin O'Malley.
In a 30-year career with county schools, Gehring progressed through the ranks, moving from guidance counselor, to principal to assistant superintendent. He recently retired from his assistant superintendent position, which he had held since 2001.
Starting this fall, Gehring, a Cockeysville resident, will teach educational psychology at Towson University.
