The Los Alamos Board of Education has a budget and a new school board member.
At a special meeting Saturday, the school board approved a $33.1 million budget and named Dawn Venhaus as its newest member.
Venhaus lives in White Rock and will replace Thelma Hahn, who announced her resignation two weeks ago.
Venhaus and her family moved to New Mexico in 1998 and to the Los Alamos area in 2001. Her husband Tom works at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and she has two children, Graeyson and Elannah. The board voted unanimously to approve her appointment.
