Baldwin-Whitehall technology director leaves district
Tim Winner has resigned as Baldwin-Whitehall School District director of technology to take a similar position at Shadyside Academy.
He was in the position for 11 years.
“We've done some exciting things,” Winner said. “I'm sad to leave behind the initiatives we started, but I'm excited for the new opportunity.”
He played a role in the redevelopment of the Baldwin-Whitehall School District website this summer. Winner, 42, began his new position as the director of education technology at Shadyside Academy on Aug. 12.
He recently moved to Aspinwall. His children Abigal, 5, and Nicholas, 2, will have their tuition waived at Shadyside Academy.
“It's a good move for me and my kids,”' he said.
Kevin Fisher, first vice president of the school board, thanked Winner for his service.
A vote to select the Baldwin High School principal and J.E. Harrison Middle School assistant principal was set to take place at the Aug. 7 meeting but was postponed because council President Nancy Sciulli-DiNardo, and council members George Pry, Ray Rosing and Diane Kazour were absent.
The board was expected to vote at the last night's meeting. Check www.yoursouthhills.com for an update.
