Elgin Area School District U-46's new school and community relations director is no stranger to public schools. The school board recently appointed Mary Fergus, formerly a spokeswoman for the Illinois State Board of Education, to that role starting June 15. "I had the view from 30,000 feet above and now I'm going to be front and center, and I love that I'm going to experience public education from both perspectives," said Fergus, 49, of Chicago.
