CompHealth allied health staffing licensing coordinator Andrea Adgate was recently elected to the Saranac Community Board of Education in Saranac, Mich. Andrea was elected to the seven-person board for a four-year term, beginning on July 1.
The primary function of the board of education is to oversee the education of people in the community.
