The Batavia Unit District 101 school board recently appointed Craig Meadows to fill a vacancy.

He replaces Bob Baty-Barr, who resigned and moved to Boulder, Colorado, for a new job.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Baty-Barr was elected in 2017. Meadows will serve until April 2021.

Meadows is an architect, a LEED accredited professional and holds a master's degree in architecture from Virginia Tech. He has worked with local school, library and park districts on master planning projects.

"Craig embodies the spirit of community and brings talent, expertise and energy to the table. We are fortunate to have him by our side," school board President Cathy Dremel said.

Meadows has served pancakes at the Annual Grace McWayne Pancake Breakfast, been a Scoutmaster for Boy Scout Pack 211, an assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 6, and a soccer coach for Tri Cities Soccer. He also has volunteered as a Batavia High School marching band parent leader.

"This is the next evolution of my commitment to the district," Meadows said. "I am dedicated to providing the best I can in service to my community."

Meadows lives in the district with his wife Heather and two sons, Aidan, a 2018 graduate of Batavia High School, and Riley, a high school freshman.
