Brent Earl taking the oath of office. 12/23/2022 - The Howell Public Schools Board of Education has appointed Brent Earl to fill the vacant board seat during a special Board of Education meeting on Friday, Dec. 23. The vacancy was created when Marcus Wilcox resigned earlier this month. Earl will serve the remainder of Wilcox’s term, which expires Dec. 31, 2024. Following Earl’s selection, he was administered the Oath of Office and joined the Board of Education at the board table for the remainder of the special meeting.

Before the application deadline, Brent Earl resigned from the Board of Education and applied to fill the seat vacated by Wilcox’s resignation. Earl’s term on the board was to end on Dec. 31, 2022. Since Earl’s term was set to end, the Board of Education will not fill the vacancy.

Brent Earl is a sales leader in the technology industry. He served on the Howell Public Schools Board of Education from 2015 - 2022. Earl has four children, three who have graduated from Howell High School and one who is currently attending school in the district. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Marketing from Hillsdale College. Earl is also a Howell High School alumnus.

Nine candidates met the criteria to apply to fill the vacant board seat. The candidates were Joseph Cartwright, Stephen Dault, Kevin De Ceuninck, Brent Earl, Stacy Farrell, Jamison Hardy, Lawrence Keister, Randall Mattson and Tanya Zirkle. As part of the application process, each candidate had to file a letter of interest and answer qualifying questions. During the Special Board of Education meeting, each candidate made a brief statement to the Board of Education and responded to questions from the board. Following the statements and questions, each board member ranked their top candidates to narrow the field of candidates to three. The board then discussed the top three candidates and once again ranked the candidates. Earl received the highest ranking, leading to a motion to appointment him to the board.
