CH-UH Board of Education elects 2017 officers
The Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District Board of Education (BOE) selected new leaders for 2017 during its annual organizational meeting on Jan. 3, in University Heights.
BOE members unanimously voted longtime board member Ron Register as president, a role he previously held. Register was vice president of the board in 2016.
Also unanimously, board members elected Kal Zucker, the outgoing BOE president, as vice president.
Board member Jim Posch was appointed treasurer pro tem, which means he will serve in place of Scott Gainer, the district's chief financial officer, if Gainer is unable to attend a board meeting. The job of treasurer pro tem includes keeping meeting minutes and recording all votes, and is a position Posch filled last year as well.
BOE members Eric Silverman and Beverly Wright both return, to round out the five-person board for 2017.
Scott Wortman is the supervisor of communications for the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District.
