Riverview High School's 1997 WPIAL championship team will be honored at halftime of the Sept. 29 football game against Springdale.

Applications are being accepted for candidates to fill a 2-year seat on the Riverview school board. The vacancy arose when Director Jeanine Hurt-Robinson won two seats at the Nov. 7 election and chose to accept the 4-year post. The vacancy becomes effective Dec. 4.

School board candidates must be at least 18 and a resident of the district for at least a year. Board members also cannot hold another public office simultaneously.

To apply for the position, submit a letter of interest and resume that includes telephone and email contact information, education, work experience, volunteer activities and other relevant subject matter to Treasurer Linda Tamburro, 701 10th St., Oakmont, PA 15139. Applications must be received by noon Nov. 28.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
