RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Alex Woodley has been appointed to the Washoe County School District Seat E. Trustees made the unanimous decision at a special meeting on Tuesday morning.

The seat was left vacant after Trustee Angie Taylor won her bid for State Assembly.

Woodley served for 9 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and was originally sworn in as the City of Reno’s Director of Parking and Code Enforcement in October 2021. He has lived in Reno since 2004, overseeing code enforcement, and downtown revitalization among other departments.

“I am honored to join the Board, and I look forward to the years to come as we help our students and teachers move forward,” said Woodley. “I owe so much to the public education system.”

Woodley says his unique background makes him the right person to connect with the district’s diverse student body.

“[To] make sure that those in the lower income status, that they are provided with all the opportunities and all the resources as anyone else in any other neighborhood,” Woodley said.

“I know the difficulties that we have in certain communities, and I’ve lived it. I’ve been a part of it and I’ve also heard it and listened to it for many years in my government position.”

Woodley will serve the remainder of Taylor’s term.
