MIAMI (WSVN) - The Miami-Dade County Public School board has sworn in a new member.

In a news release Tuesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the appointment of Maria Bosque-Blanco to the school board.

“I’m truly humbled,” Bosque-Blanco said.

Bosque-Blanco, who was a guidance counselor at Our Lady of Lourdes Academy, will now represent District 7 and will replace former school board vice chair Lubby Navarro.

The board will also then vote on a new vice chair to take the place of Navarro.

She was elected in November but resigned last month.

“It has always been clear to me [that] collaboration between home and school are the most effective,” Bosque-Blanco said. “Thank you, gov.”

It is possible former vice chair Steve Gallon III will be nominated again.

Meantime, the Broward County School Board is set to swear in a new board member and discuss the future of the next superintendent for its school board.
