2 new Colo. education board members sworn in

DENVER (AP) – The state board of education has two new members.

Debora Scheffel, a Republican from Parker, and Paul Lundeen, a Republican from Monument, were sworn into office Wednesday in Denver. Angelika Schroeder, who was appointed to fill a vacancy two years ago, also took the oath of office after winning her first election to the board.

Lundeen is involved in businesses in Colorado and California which he says range from real estate development to investment managing. He also used to work in broadcasting in Washington.

Scheffel is an expert in special education and is the dean of the education school at Jones International University. She’s also the sister of state Sen. Mark Scheffel.

The board has picked congressman Bob Schaffer to serve again as chairman.
