Nancy Sciulli DiNardo was unanimously appointed to serve as president of the Baldwin-Whitehall School Board. This took place as the board held its reorganization meeting for 2013 on Wednesday night.

Sciulli DiNardo, 44, of Baldwin Borough, was first elected to the school board in November 2005 and was re-elected in 2009, but had to resign in fall 2010 because of an employment conflict. She then was reappointed to the school board in January 2012 when a seat opened up.

Sciulli DiNardo said it took her a few years of service as a school board member before she thought she was ready to serve as president. She anticipates running the school board will be another education.

“I had to grow as being a board member and that takes time,” Sciulli DiNardo said. “I know this isn't going to be an easy job.”

Goals for her term are simple – focus on students and watch the district's budget.

Kevin Fischer will serve as first vice president and Diana Kazour will serve as second vice president. The two were unanimously reappointed to those positions.

Solicitor Edward Lawrence, of Tucker Arensberg, was unanimously reappointed to his position. This is Lawrence's 37th year as district solicitor.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
