The Quaker Valley School Board appointed Edgeworth resident Jeffrey Watters on Oct. 22 to fill the remaining two years of school director Jack Norris' term.

Norris resigned last month.

“As a father of three Quaker Valley School District students and a longtime resident of this community,” said Watters, 47, “I understand and appreciate the value of a high-performing school district and the critical role played by the board. I believe my personal and professional background make me an ideal candidate to serve out the remainder of Norris' term.”

Watters has served as president of Ainsworth Pet Nutrition in Meadville since 2009. He previously held positions at Kraft, Clorox, Heinz and Del Monte.

“Whether in my personal or professional life, I've demonstrated the courage to do the right thing, not the easy thing” Watters said.

“I intend to bring this same principle-based approach and an enduring commitment to fairness and inclusion to the important work of the Quaker Valley School Board.”

Watters has children attending Edgeworth Elementary School, Quaker Valley Middle School and Quaker Valley High School.

Norris — who moved to the Long Island, N.Y., area after serving on the board for 10 years — had retired as managing director of commercial-real-estate service firm CB Richard Ellis' Pittsburgh office.
