I retired from the Boardman Local School May 31st, 2021. During my 33 years teaching, I had the pleasure of working with a very diverse population of students. I have served nearly 12 years as a Township Trustee in Boardman. Members of our township team have participated in many community forums to discuss how we can promote diversity and inclusion within our community. We welcome all to live, shop or dine in Boardman Township. As a political entity of Mahoning County, our school data suggest we are the most diverse population within the County. Our policies will be to continue doing what is right and fair to every person living or visiting our great Township.
