Degrees and Certifications:

Clerk of the Board, Marianne Southwick

Marianne Southwick began in April 2022 as the new Clerk of the Board. 

Marianne comes to us from Palmer, Alaska (a 749-hour walk from here) where she was an administrative assistant for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District. Her daughter lives in Coeur d'Alene, so she already has a community connection.

“I have worked for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District for 17 years as a paraprofessional and administrative secretary in the Office of Instruction, and am very excited to learn the role of Clerk of the Board and continue my career working in a K-12 district.”

Marianne was born in Anchorage and grew up there. She has lived in Salt Lake City, the Seattle area, and most recently in Palmer. She has four children living in different states and two granddaughters who also live in Coeur d’Alene.
