Ligonier Valley school board President Robinson forced to resign

Ligonier Valley school board President Bruce Robinson announced at Monday’s meeting that he would be resigning effective Dec. 31.

Robinson served on the board for more than seven years. He said he is prohibited by state law to serve in two elected positions. He was elected to serve a three-year term as a Ligonier Township supervisor, effective in January.

He said he had mixed emotions about leaving the board.

“Education is a great passion of mine. I am leaving on a high note. This school board is in great shape,” Robinson said. “We have established a lot of goals we set out to do. But the township is in need of direction. I will do the best I can for the township.”

Board member John Maier thanked Robinson for his service.

“He led us through some very challenging times during his leadership,” Maier said.

The board approved a motion to accept Robinson’s resignation and to advertise for a citizen interested in serving as a member of the school board.

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.
