Wednesday's Board of Education meeting is at 5:30 p.m. A previous version of the story incorrectly stated the time as 4:00 p.m.

(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Ten candidates are looking to join the St. Joseph School District Board of Education.

A seat opened up with the sudden resignation of board president Seth Wright, who is leaving to take a job in the Kansas City area.

Rules dictate that instead of an election, the rest of the board will appoint someone to serve the rest of Wright's term. Many of those who have offered their names for consideration are familiar from board elections in previous years.

The board will review their applications at a public meeting Wednesday at the Troester Media Center starting at 5:30 p.m. it will be open to the public.

The candidates are Joseph Gehring, Brian Shewell, Mark Langemach, David Foster, Latonya Williams, Michelle Traster, David Jordan, Terresa Parks, Dr. Raquel Coy and Kenneth Reeder.

We started off the weekend today with continued muggy and hot conditions with temperatures in the 90s. There are thunderstorms to the west headed towards us. Some of the area may see a slight chance for rain overnight. Tomorrow looks to be another day in the mid 90s with a slight chance for thunderstorms in the afternoon. There is a cold front coming our way giving us some much cooler temperatures to start off the work week. Highs will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
