Hunt resigns from Carlynton School Board
The Carlynton School Board is looking for someone to fill a vacancy after member Carl Hunt resigned last week, effective July 31.
Hunt resigned at the July 14 board meeting. He said he will be moving out of the district.
“Obviously, this was something unforeseen last year, when I ran for office,” he said.
Hunt had been on the board since he was sworn in in January after winning the seat in the November general election. Four candidates ran and were elected to fill four open seats.
Hunt said he has enjoyed his time on the school board.
“Working with (Superintendent Gary Peiffer) and the rest of the school board has been a wonderful experience,” he said. “They're an extremely professional group of people. They're truly looking after the best interests of the district.”
Board President David Roussos said Hunt was a very involved parent and community member prior to his board tenure.
“Really, his time on the board was just his latest commitment to the district,” Roussos said. “In a short time, he's really been a very, very critical part of what we've been doing.”
He invited any interested residents to apply by July 31. Applicants should submit a letter of application that includes qualifications and the reasons for their interest. A resume is requested but not required.
Applicants must be registered to vote and have lived in the district for at least one year as of Aug. 4. Interviews will be held Aug. 4. Send applications to Roussos at Carlynton School District, 435 Kings Highway, Carnegie, PA 15106.
