New members join Penn Manor school board

Four members of the Penn Manor Board of School Directors were sworn in Monday, December 6, to serve four-year terms on the board.

District Judge Joshua Keller administered the oath of office to Nicki Nafziger, Chris Straub and newcomers Frederick Herr and Loren R. Brown. All were elected last month to serve on the all-volunteer board through 2025.

Herr and Brown were elected to replace David Paitsel and Richard Frerichs, who decided not to seek re-election. Herr is self-employed, and Brown works as an assistant fire chief.

Also Monday, the school board elected Rintz as president and Joe Fullerton as vice president of the nine-member school board. They will serve for two years in those positions.

 “The Penn Manor community is fortunate to have nine dedicated school board directors who are committed to providing a quality education to our students,” said Penn Manor superintendent Mike Leichliter. “Penn Manor continues to be in excellent hands.”

Congratulations to our new members, and thank you to all who serve on the school board for their dedication to our students.
