Hempfield names recreation director

| Friday, July 6, 2012, 12:01 a.m.

Hempfield has hired a new recreation director.

Jason Winters, 29, of North Huntingdon, will start July 9, according to Supervisor Doug Weimer, chairman of the board.

Winters replaces Dean Minerva, who resigned abruptly earlier this year after being accused of stealing $22,000 in department funds. Minerva was placed in a Westmoreland County diversionary program for nonviolent offenders, known as Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition, after repaying the money to the township. ARD allows a person to serve a period of good behavior and have his record cleared as long as he is not accused of any other crimes.

Winters was coordinator of Campus Life at St. Vincent College since 2007. Before that, he was coordinator of Residence Life at the school from 2006 to 2007.

He is a graduate of the Unity college who earned a master's degree in education from Geneva College.

He was selected this year for the St. Vincent College Administrator Award.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
