At its annual reorganization meeting Jan. 5, the Randolph Board of Education swore three members in to new terms on the board.
Randolph Township Schools Business Administrator/Board Secretary Gerald Eckert conducted the ceremony in the Randolph High School Library and administered the oath of office to Board of Education members, from left, Colleen Pascale, Anne Standridge and Tammy MacKay. The three members were uncontested in the November election for three 3-year seats.
Also at the meeting, the board elected Al Matos as its new president and Chrissie Aulenbach as its new vice president for 2016.
Matos said that he is very excited for this opportunity.
“It is an honor to serve the school community,” he said. “I am proud to have been elected board president. I am looking forward to continuing the great initiatives as we bring on a new superintendent, handle fiduciary budget duties and continue to advance education in Randolph and make Randolph one of the premiere districts in the nation.”
Matos, who served as board vice president for the past two years, commenced his ninth year on the board this month. He has lived in Randolph more than 20 years and is an energy executive with domestic/international experiences in infrastructure, renewables and energy efficiency and is currently the COO for Noveda Technologies, Inc.
Aulenbach said she is thrilled to be elected board vice president.
“In the last two years, I have served as chair of the personnel committee, a member of the policy committee and lead point person of our most recent superintendent search subcommittee,” said Aulenbach. “These experiences have been an invaluable part of my readiness to serve in this new capacity.
“My combined experience as an educator and lifelong resident of Randolph helps me remain at the forefront of education in the community,” she said, adding “my goal will continue to be putting our students first.”
