Shaler Area school board vice president Domenic Donovan will resign effective June 28, six months ahead of his term expiration.

Donovan cited work and family obligations as the reason he is stepping down.

“Thank you for your service and insight,” said board president Jim Giel to Donovan. “Thank you for your presence at this table.”

The board has 30 days from Donovan's resignation to appoint a replacement to fill the vacancy, which school board member Mary Lou Dixon recommended be filled by Suzanna Donahue.

Donahue defeated Donovan on the Republican and Democratic ticket for Region 2 in the May 21 primary. As a newcomer, Donahue beat the incumbent 261 to 138 votes on the Republican ticket and 544 to 201 on the Democratic ticket.

Donahue, 42 of Shaler Township, is a mother of three, ages 4 to 8, and has an undergraduate degree in environmental resource management and a master's degree in marine policy.

The school board plans to appoint Donahue on Wednesday, July 17.
