District Superintendent Dr. Steve Kennedy administered the oath to Bennett along with Ron Ulibarri, the new board president, and trustees Dr. Randall Freeman and Jerry Bowman. Vice President Robert O'Donnell was not required to participate in the swearing in because his term is not up until 2015.
Bennett defeated Rita Peters for the District 1 seat (Quail Valley). Peters, who was named to the board to complete Scott Mann's term when Mann resigned to become mayor, was given a plaque of appreciation at Tuesday's meeting. She had also served a previous term on the board.
Bennett, 44, is a teacher in the Corona-Norco Unified School District.
The board also announced the appointment of Anita Alfonso (left) as the new Principal of Evans Ranch Elementary School. She will join the staff as the ERE Principal beginning Dec. 16.
