The season of change continued Tuesday as the Monessen, Charleroi Area, and Ringgold school boards reorganized.

Charleroi Area

In Charleroi, Ken Wiltz will again serve as president of the school board with Jim Short serving as vice president. Wiltz and Rosalie Carroll were sworn in along with newcomers Joe Caruso and Barbara Pepper.

The district retained the law firm of Bassi, McCune & Vreeland to serve as solicitor for the board.

Meeting times will not change as work sessions and business meetings will continue to be held on the third and fourth Tuesdays of the month.

The board will not meet again until a work session on Jan. 21.


Across the river, the Monessen School Board welcomed four new members.

Claiming seats after running unopposed in November's general election, Roberta Bergstedt, Donna Fantauzzi, Maria Scuteri and Cheryl Galilei were sworn in.

Fantauzzi was voted as board president with Lee Johnson tabbed vice president. Cindy Pawelec will remain board secretary and Amy Bukowski will serve as board treasurer.

Solicitor John Toohey had his contract renewed for another year.


At Ringgold, Mariann Bulko was chosen to continue serving as board president with Bill Stein serving as vice president. Carol Flament was voted to be the second vice president. Director Larry Mauro won two seats in the general election and chose to fill the 4-year term seat, so the board appointed Jason Gerard to fill the 2-year seat after Mauro chose which position to fill.

Gerard lost to Mauro by a 20 vote margin in November.

Sherrie Crawley Garrie, Flament, Gerard, Stein, Maureen Ott, Mauro, and Chris Carroll were all sworn in Tuesday.

The board announced that meetings will remain the third Wednesday of the month and will meet again for their regular meeting on Dec. 18.
