A Level Green man was selected unanimously on Monday night by the Penn-Trafford school board to replace former director Larry Harrison, who resigned last week.

Martin Stovar took Harrison's place representing Region 1 in the term that runs through 2013. The board selected Stovar from six candidates who were interviewed at a meeting last week.

Stovar, a manufacturing engineer, said he is excited to start working and looks forward to getting up to speed on everything going on in the district.

"I'm honored that they chose me," he said.

The board noted again of the difficulty in choosing one person to replace Harrison, who was elected Penn Township commissioner.

Director Nick Petrucci called the decision "very tough" and board president Scott Koscho thanked all of the candidates for their interest.

Stovar said during his interview that he is a graduate of Penn-Trafford and has three children in the district.

In other business, the board:

• Approved tax-exempt status for property in Trafford to be used as a fire station.

• Accepted the resignation of Patricia Solo as seventh- and eighth-grade girls' volleyball coach at Penn Middle School.

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.
