Washowich Resigns as School Board President

Category: News || By Jennifer Sopko

After serving on the McKeesport Area School Board for 14 years, Wayne Washowich has stepped down as board president due to his residency change.

The school board accepted Washowich's resignation at its regular meeting on Wednesday night. Superintendent Timothy Gabauer read a statement from Washowich clarifying his reasons for resigning from the board.

After living in White Oak for 45 years and serving on the MASD school board since 1997, Washowich explained that he and his wife decided to move to Elizabeth Township in order to build a new home on available property, which the couple was unable to find in White Oak.

"The time I've dedicated to the McKeesport Area School District was the most fulfilling and I will certainly miss that aspect of my community involvement," Washowich said in his written statement. "I am committed, however, to this area and will continue to be active in White Oak as its Zoning and Code Enforcement Officer."

The board wished Washowich luck on his new ventures. "Wayne Washowich has given so much of his time not only to White Oak, to the schools, but also working as a police officer and zoning officer ... It was my pleasure to sit here with him on this board and he will be sadly missed," said board member Mark Holtzman.

The school board is accepting letters of application for Washowich's vacant seat until October 14.
