 KALAMAZOO — Carol McGlinn, executive director of Kalamazoo’s Specialized Language Development Center, has been unanimously elected president of the Kalamazoo Public School Board of Education for 2010-11.

 She is replacing Mollie Peterson, who did not seek re-election in May.

 McGlinn, who joined the board two years ago, was KPS vice president for 2009-10. Board bylaws call for the vice president to become president after a year, subject to a board vote……………………………..

McGlinn, 47, said she is anxious to continue progress on the district’s various reform efforts.

 “I’m sure there will be lots of challenges this school year, but I’m also sure that we’ll continue in a positive direction,” she said. “I’m looking forward to the work ahead.”

McGlinn, who has a business degree from Michigan State University, resides in the Westnedge Hill neighborhood and is the wife of Daniel McGlinn, a Kalamazoo lawyer and former vice chairman of the Kalamazoo County Board of Commissioners.

The couple have two children: Evan, 19, who will be a junior in the fall at University of Michigan, and Lauren, 17, who will be a senior at Loy Norrix High School and the Kalamazoo Area Math and Science Center.

McGlinn has been an active KPS parent volunteer over the years, and has headed the SLD Center since February 2009. The nonprofit agency provides testing and tutoring for children with dxslexia and other learning disorders that affect reading and writing
