Three items were considered in a Special Board of Education meeting held Thursday, June 28. The first item was the correction on a submission to the CC County Auditor for Appropriation Modification and Amended Certificate for Fiscal Year 2012. There was an error on the original certificate that the Board had to vote on to correct.
The other items of business were the hiring of three new teachers for the district. After a 63 minute Executive Session the Board approved the appointments of John Geramita as a High School Intervention Specialist, Mrs. Emilee Wilson as another High School Intervention Specialist and Miss Shelby Householder as a Garfield Elementary teacher. Both Geramita and Wilson will be working with students with developmental disabilities.
Geramita will replace Randy Young and Willson will replace Sue Ellen Meadows. Both Young and Meadows retired at the end of this past school year. Householder is replacing a teacher that will be moving up to the Middle School. She will be teaching First Grade.
Geramita is a New Castle, PA resident and a Youngstown State graduate. Householder is a Wellsville alumni from the Class of 2008 and a recent graduate of Mount Union College. Geramita & Householder are pictured above. Mrs. Wilson did not attend the meeting.
