A pastor has been chosen as East Baton Rouge's newest school board member.
Rev. Tommie Gipson is filling the interim positon until January.
Board Vice President Jay Augustine recommended the reverend when he resigned his position last month. Augustine gave up the seat to take a position with the state's workforce commission.
The board also selected member Tarvald Smith as the new Vice President.
