Suzanna Donahue took her seat on the Shaler Area school board on July 10 to fill the unexpired term of board vice president Domenic Donovan who resigned last month.

Donahue defeated Donovan on the Republican and Democratic ticket for Region 2 in the primary elections in May, and the school board voted to have her take a seat on the board early to fill Donovan's vacancy.

“We felt the best way to do this was for the person who will obviously take the seat fill the seat,” said Jim Giel, school board president. Donovan resigned effective Friday, June 28, six months ahead of his term expiration.

In his letter of resignation, he cited work and family obligations preventing him from completing his four-year term.

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 also approved board member Jim Fisher as the new vice president, the position Donovan previously held.

Fisher will serve as vice president until the board holds its annual reorganization meeting in December.
