One new member recently joined the Hampton Township School District school board when it reorganized for the New Year.

Cathy Lueers joined the nine-person school panel along with re-elected board members Denise Balason, Gail Litwiler and Greg Stein.

“I'm passionate about education and I have been,” Lueers said. “I've been in the nonprofit world for a long time, and I thought I could make an impact.”

Lueers and three other school board members ran unopposed in the Nov. 5 election. Lueers replaces David Gurwin, former school board president, who did not run for re-election.

Lueers has a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Kansas and a master's degree in marketing and communications from Regent University.

She has worked in marketing, development and for-profit and nonprofit management in her career. She also has served on the board of Compassion Connection, a nonprofit corporation in Bethel Park. Lueers and her husband, Jim, moved to Hampton in 2007 with their four children.

The newly sworn-in board members joined the holdover board members to take the first actions of the annual reorganization meeting and appointed Bryant Wesley as school board president and Mary Alice Hennessey as board vice president.

The board also approved the 2014 school board meeting schedule.

Work sessions will take place on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. Voting meetings will take place on the second Monday of the Month at 7:30 p.m. and an option special meeting will be held, as needed, on the fourth Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m.

Some exceptions will take place when federal holidays fall on a Monday.

The next school board meeting is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 6, at 7 p.m.
