2 new members appointed to Fox Chapel School Board
There are two new faces on the Fox Chapel Area School Board.
Lisa Rutkowski and Somer Obernauer Jr. were appointed Saturday during a special session to fill the unexpired terms of Robin Baum and Sherman Snyder, each who resigned in March due to personal reasons.
Rutkowski, a real estate agent with Howard Hanna, has lived in the district for eight years.
Obernauer is the owner of some Allstate insurance agencies and has been a district resident for 30 years.
Both will represent Region I of the school district, which includes all of Sharpsburg and Wards 2, 3, and 4 of O'Hara Township. Both of their terms will run through December 2015.
“The School Board was very fortunate to have three candidates who were highly qualified for the two open positions and we truly value each candidate's strengths,” Board President Nancy Foster said.
