Plum school board appoints new president
Plum School Board has a new leader.
Members unanimously appointed Scott Coulson board president at a reorganization meeting Dec. 3.
The Republican and director of computing services and telecommunications at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is in his first term on the board.
“It’s an honor, of course, to have the support of my fellow board members,” Coulson said. “We’ve got a great team, and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
He replaced Steve Schlauch, who served one year as president. Schlauch remains finance committee chairman.
“Moving forward, we will remain focused on doing our best to continue working with the administrators, teachers and staff on constantly looking to improve the education and safety of our students,” Coulson said. “In addition, we’ve developed a strong relationship with the borough administration that I’d like to continue to work with and cultivate.
“It is important to me personally that we work to improve the relationship with our neighbors and community as best we can. It takes time, I know that.”
The board also unanimously reappointed Vicky Roessler as vice president.
Bruce Dice remains district solicitor and the Tribune-Review’s Valley News Dispatch was approved as Plum’s local newspaper of record.
Board workshop meetings are scheduled for 7 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month, and voting meetings are the fourth Tuesday of the month, both at the high school unless otherwise directed.
More information about board activity is available under the School Board tab of the district’s website, pbsd.net .
