Consuelo Redhorse, a Summit Board of Education member first elected in 2019, announced she will seek reelection this fall. Four board seats, including Redhorse’s, will be up for election in November.

Redhorse was appointed president by the board in July after former president Kate Hudnut stepped down. Hudnut said she plans to finish her term as an at-large board member.

Redhorse, who works a part-time job at a local property management company specializing in long-term apartment rentals, also serves on the board of directors of Smart Bellies, an anti-hunger nonprofit. Her past experience includes serving on Summit County Preschool Board of Directors as well as involvement with various Summit School District programs and organizations.

As a board member, Redhorse served on the committee that drafted the district’s equity policy as well as the committee that searched for and recruited current Superintendent Tony Byrd. She also helped lead the adoption of a new set of board policies such as revisions to its International Baccalaureate curriculum that reaffirmed the district’s support.
