Steel Valley School District has chosen a new business manager.

At a special meeting on Monday, the board unanimously appointed John Zenone to the position.

Zenone will replace Sheldon Berk, who has been interim business manager since June at a rate of $50 per hour.

The district could not release a salary figure for Zenone because he has not yet accepted the position.

It's been about 17 months since Mark Cherpak was Steel Valley's regular business manager.

In May, the board offered Greensburg resident James Marnell the position at a salary of $104,000, but Marnell declined the offer.

Zenone is business manager for Armstrong School District. Prior to that he had similar positions with the Deer Lakes and Allegheny Valley school districts and was a certified public accountant for the consulting firm Hosack Specht Muetzel & Wood.

Steel Valley director Michael Terrick said he thinks Zenone, who is working toward a master's degree in leadership and ethics at Duquesne University and has a master's in business administration from Point Park University, will be a good fit for the district.

“I'm proud to say things are moving in the right direction for Steel Valley,” Terrick said.

Superintendent Edward Wehrer said the district received 17 applications and interviewed nine candidates.

In other business, the board unanimously appointed Jeffrey Pingor as assistant baseball coach and Jarred Masley as athletic baseball volunteer for the upcoming season.
