LPS School Board Member resigns

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)-  Board member Eric Sharum submitted his resignation. His last day will be March 31st.

Sharum resigned to avoid conflicts between his involvement with the Oklahoma Sports Network and his public service as a board member. Lawton Public Schools contracted with OSN for some of their sports production and streaming.

LPS did not pay for the OSN services. Sharum was on the school board at the time the contracts were signed. The contracts between OSN and LPS are now void.

The Board will vote to approve the resignation at a special board meeting on March 28. Upon approval and declaration of a vacancy, the board will consider the appointment of a replacement for the Area 3 vacancy.
