North Hills school board members Ed Wielgus and Helen 'Dee' Spade.

The North Hills school board has voted to maintain its current leadership through the end of next year.

The board on Monday re-elected Ed Wielgus as board president and Dee Spade as vice president at its annual reorganization meeting. Both appointments are for a year.

Wielgus, 67, has served as the president numerous times since first joining the school board in 1997.

Spade, 72, has been on the board since 2015. She was elected vice-president in September after the board’s vice president, Arlene Bender, died. Bender was a school director for nearly 35 years.

Bender’s seat on the board was filled by Tim Burnett, who previously served on the school board from 2001 to 2013. Burnett’s term runs through the end of 2019.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
