A Walgreen Co. employee has been appointed to fill a vacancy on the Maine Township High School District 207 board of education.

Pablo Morales, of Park Ridge, will serve on the board through April 2015 -- the remaining time on the term of Eric Leys, a 13-year board member who stepped down last month. Leys moved to Orange County, California to take a job with Penske Automotive Group.

Morales is senior manager of implementations, products and services for Walgreens, headquartered in Deerfield. He has spent 20 years working as a project manager, and has experience in conflict resolution, according to a district news release.

He has served as a member of the District 207 Community Advisory Council for the last two years, and currently has two sons attending Maine South High School.

The school board approved his appointment 6-0 Sunday after interviewing seven candidates who applied for the vacancy. He will be sworn in prior to the Sept. 2 board meeting.
