As expected, Kenyetta Nelson-Smith will be serving as the interim vice president of the East Baton Rouge Parish School Board.
She was appointed to the post during a special meeting of the panel Thursday.
Connie Bernard, while still a board member, resigned as VP last Friday because of her husband's cancer diagnosis.
Calls for her resignation began recently after a profanity-laced video of her went viral of her confronting a group of young party goers at a home in her neighborhood.
