Clairton City School District honored its board leaders on Wednesday for their long-term commitment to the district.

Superintendent Ginny Hunt recognized president Richard Livingston for his 12 years of service and vice president Paulette Bradford for her 16 years.

“School directors have a difficult job in our complex community, giving more and more of their personal time to this non-paid, volunteer effort,” Hunt said.

Livingston is a Clairton graduate and parent of two Clairton graduates, and his wife is a retired district employee.

“After retiring from a long teaching career, Mr. Livingston continues to devote his time, effort and expertise to help improve teaching and learning,” Hunt said.

Livingston is a supporter of the arts, music, education and special education programs.

Livingston serves on the district's personnel committee, and as president is involved in a larger scope of district business.

“He is well known in the school and the community,” Hunt said. “His heart and soul is Clairton.”

Bradford, who chairs the athletic committee and serves on the personnel committee, is a founding member of the Champion's Club, a volunteer organization that supports the district's athletes by keeping them engaged in positive activities outside of school. The organization helps to provide food, uniforms and other items for children in need.

“Under (Bradford's) leadership, she has raised the standards academically for Clairton student athletes,” Hunt said. “Her behind-the-scenes work supporting Clairton football from the midget leagues through high school has been instrumental in the Clairton football success story.”
