Two New Board Members Sworn Into Office at Summit Educational Service Center

– The Summit Educational Service Center recently welcomed two new members to its Governing Board.

Christina Barry and Tina Young were sworn into office at the January 21 organizational meeting.  Both were elected in November to serve terms that run through December 2023. 

Barry, a resident of Cuyahoga Falls and a Deputy Court Clerk with Akron Municipal Court, said she looks forward to making more people aware of services offered by the ESC and to helping further support programming for students with disabilities.  Young resides in Green and owns Young’s Auction Center, along with her husband.  As a mother of four, she wants to help provide the building blocks of education.  She said she decided to run for the Board because she believes in giving back to the community.

“I am thrilled to have two new members on our Board, both of whom bring fresh ideas and insight to our organization,” said Summit ESC Superintendent Joseph Iacano. “We remain committed to providing quality services that support teaching and learning opportunities.”

Also at the January meeting, Michael Chadsey was elected to serve as Board President for 2020, while Patricia Weber was elected as Vice President.  James Carr rounds out the five-member ESC Governing Board.

The Summit ESC, based in Cuyahoga Falls, works with school districts in Northeast Ohio to provide contract-based services, such as audiology, speech therapy, behavior therapy and professional development opportunities for school personnel.
