WRIGHTSTOWN - The Wrightstown Community School District Board of Education plans to appoint a citizen to assume the seat vacated when School Board President Tom Eggert moved out of the district over the summer.

The decision on his replacement is on the agenda for the school board's meeting this Wednesday, September 15, at 6 p.m., in the high school library. To attend the meeting, park in the lot in front of the school, adjacent to High Street (State 96).


The deadline for applications was 5 p.m. on Monday, September 6, Labor Day.

The people who asked to be considered for the appointment are Kevin Agen, Maggie Boland, Christina Gitzlaff, John (Jack) Lewis, Rebecca Lopez, Robert Stuebner, Neeley Welch-Lamer and Angela Winker.



"The applicants were not interviewed or screened, but all of the current board members have reviewed the applications that were submitted and the answers to the Board Appointee Questionnaire completed by the applicants," district Superintendent Carla Buboltz said. "The board member votes will be dependent on the submitted application materials and any other personal information that [they] might have regarding a candidate."

Eggert was chosen as board president in May, following the April election. On a 4-3 confidential ballot vote he replaced board President Mike Van Eperen.

Following the selection of one of the applicants as the new board member, the board will reorganize, and choose a new board president.
