Rebekah Swanson was named president of the Hesperia Recreation and Park District's board of directors during last Wednesday's regular meeting. Swanson, who was elected in November of 2006, follows outgoing board president Bob Chandler.


Jack Hamilton, who spent 19 years on the board of education, was named the park board's vice-president. After the board's reorganization, Rebekah Swanson led a discussion of director committee assignments.


Swanson also has served as president of the Friends of the Library. Her husband, Eric Swanson, served on the board of education.
