School board honors members for service

Penn Manor school board Monday night honored two members who recently completed their service on the board. Franklin Hoke and Amber Green both received plaques recognizing their years of service from school board president Ken Long.

Green, who served for three years, resigned from the board in October to pursue a seat on the Manor Township board of supervisors. She was elected to that post Nov. 5. Hoke, who has served on the board since 2007, did not run for another term.

Hoke said his time on the board was “an amazing experience and a privilege.” In addition to the plaque, he received a lamp made by members of the Manor FFA program in honor of his longtime support of Penn Manor’s agricultural education program. Hoke served on the school district’s ag advisory committee for his entire tenure.

New board member Joseph Fullerton was appointed earlier this month to replace Green. David Paitsel, elected to the school board Nov. 5, will fill Hoke’s seat beginning next month.
