The Woodland Hills School District board of directors voted Wednesday to name David Graves of Turtle Creek to the board.

He will fill the seat left vacant after the resignation of Andre Moore in August. Moore will be moving out of state.

Graves, a 1992 graduate of Woodland Hills, said that he is looking forward to working with current members to "bring some new energy to the board."

The board also recently filled the position left vacant by former President Tara Reis, who abruptly stepped down in July.

Wilkins Township resident Chardae Seligsohn was named to Reis' seat in August. Board Member Jamie Glasser replaced Reis as president.

Both Seligsohn and Graves need to run for election in November in order to keep their seats.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
