Beth McIntyre, who has served as president of Chartiers Valley School Board since June 2010, resigned from that position last week.
At the board’s reorganization meeting, McIntyre nominated board Vice President Pam Poletti to serve as the new president. The school board accepted the nomination with a 9-0 vote.
McIntyre has been a member of the board for 16 years.
Also at the meeting, board member Sandy Zeleznik nominated Wendy Huntoon to serve as vice president. This also was accepted unanimously by the board.
The board appointed Poletti to a three-year term as its representative to the Parkway West Board. Jeff Choura was appointed as the alternate.
The 2013 meeting dates were approved. The workshop meeting will be held the second meeting of the month, and the regular meeting will be the fourth meeting of the month. The meetings will begin at 7:30.
Stephanie Russell has taken on a unique senior project, collecting instruments for the fifth-graders at Chartiers Valley Intermediate School.
Financial reasons prevent many students from participating in band. With the donations, Russell hopes to change that.
Donation tables will be set up at the upcoming Chartiers Valley High School band and orchestra concert on Tuesday at 7 p.m., and the Chartiers Valley Middle School band and orchestra concert the following night at 7.
