ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Newly selected Albuquerque Public School Board member Yolanda Montoya-Cordova has been officially sworn in for her District 1 seat.

Monday, the Board of Education voted on Montoya-Cordova to replace Analee Maestas.

Maestas recently resigned amid allegations she embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from La Promesa Early Learning Center, which she founded.

District 1 covers the South Valley and includes Rio Grande and Atrisco Heritage Academy high schools.

Montoya-Cordova was born and raised in that area. She will serve out the remainder of Maestas’ term, which expires in 2019.
