The Community College of Allegheny County has added two new board members this fall: Amy M. Kuntz and Joseph G. Brimmeier.
Kuntz is a senior vice president and market director for PNC Institutional Investments in the Greater Pittsburgh Metro area, the school announced this morning.
Kuntz chairs the PNC's Charitable Trust Committee, which oversees grant distributions for more than 30 charitable trusts, the release said. Prior to serving as market director in Pittsburgh, she served in the same capacity in Washington, D.C., as part of PNC's acquisition of Riggs Bank.
Kuntz has a Pennsylvania teaching certificate and graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor of arts in education from Westminster College in 1995.
Brimmeier is the chief executive of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, the school said in a statement. He has more than 30 years of government experience at the local, state and federal levels.
Brimmeier's past positions include Monroeville municipal manager, state deputy auditor general and chief of staff for former U.S. Rep. Ron Klink.
He holds bachelor's and master's degrees from Youngstown State University.
CCAC also announced it has named five new members to its Educational Foundation Board.
The foundation raises funds for scholarships, college programs and advocates for CCAC in the community.
The new board members are Jesse Campayno, a veteran of the plumbing industry for more than three decades and a 1981 CCAC alumnus; Stephen D'Angelo, a veteran executive of many companies and graduate of Providence College; Peter DeComo, a veteran healthcare industry executive and a CCAC and University of Pittsburgh alum; Jerry Lopes, a veteran radio journalist who attended Johnson & Wales Junior College in Rhode Island and Boston University; and Sharon McGinnis Young, a part owner of the McGinnis Sisters Specialty Food Store and CCAC alum.

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.
