Carlynton school board sets appointments, duties

| Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The Carlynton School Board swore in two new directors and two returning directors on Dec. 3 at its reorganization meeting.

Antriece Hart, of Carnegie, and Carl Hunt, of Crafton, were sworn in as new members. Incumbents Nyra Schell, of Rosslyn Farms, and Joseph Appel, of Crafton, also were sworn in.

Schell has served on the board since 2009 and Appel since 2011.

Hart, who has three children in the district, said she wants to help her children and the district.

“I am just a parent who cares and wants the best for my children and community,” she said.

Hunt has two children in the district and has been active in the Save our Schools campaign, which worked to keep both Carnegie and Crafton elementary schools open when the district was considering building one new combined elementary school in 2011.

“Carlynton is already a great school district,” he said. “But we always have room for improvements.”

Director David Roussos was re-elected president of the board, and Betsy Tassaro was re-elected vice president. Ray Walkowiak was elected treasurer, a position that normally runs from July 1 to June 30. Former treasurer Sandra Hughan did not seek re-election.

The board also re-appointed William Andrews as district solicitor and appointed his law office as tax counsel for the district.

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.
