Former Penn Manor school leaders honored

Former school board members and administrators with ties to Penn Manor spanning more than 50 years were honored Monday night at the Penn Manor School District Leadership Dinner.

Held in the Manor Middle School cafeteria, the event brought together a wide range of former school directors and administrators, including Dr. Elmer Berkebile, Penn Manor’s first superintendent following school consolidation. He served from 1967 to 1983.

The guests included 12 former school board members, two former superintendents and a former school board secretary. Joining them were current Penn Manor board members and administrators.

The dinner is held every other year to honor those who have helped guide the school district by serving in leadership roles.

In addition to Berkebile, attendees included former superintendent Don Stewart and former school directors Kirk Schlotzhauer, Jeffrey Kreider, Frank Hoke, Willis Herr, Alice Ahfield, Bob Kindig, Jane Barley, Dick Bauder, Amber Green, John Wenzel, Ken Greider and Frank Geist. Also attending was former school board secretary Paula Howard.

To all who have served leadership roles in Penn Manor School District over the years, our heartfelt thanks!
