Gov. Dave Heineman is looking for applicants to fill a second vacant position on the Nebraska State Board of Education.
The governor said in a news release Thursday there's an opening in the eight-member board to represent residents of District 4, which includes portions of Douglas and Sarpy counties.
The announcement comes after the resignation Tuesday of board member Rebecca Valdez. She is the second board member to resign in a month, after Mark Quandahl of District 2 resigned in late January.
The terms for Valdez and Quandahl both run through 2016.
