Revere school board member selected

BATH — The Revere Local Schools Board of Education selected a new member to fill the vacant seat formerly held by Mike Kahoe, who resigned last month to take a position with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Development in Columbus.
Following an application process that was time-restricted due to a law that the vacant seat be filled within 30 days of the resignation, the board received a number of applications from qualified persons who were at least 18 years of age and registered voters living in the district.
The board interviewed the top five candidates at a special meeting held March 13 and voted to appoint Courtney Stein to fill the vacant seat, which has a term that expires Dec. 31, 2023. She will have to run in the Nov. 7 General Election to retain the seat.
According to district officials, Stein is a graduate of John Carroll University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and is a former teacher. Her younger daughter currently attends school in the district and her older daughter graduated from Revere High School.
Stein has been active in the district, serving as a founding member of the Revere Schools Foundation and on the high school Parent Teacher Student Association. She is also a member of several area chambers of commerce.
“I love being a part of the Revere community and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve on the Revere Local school board,” said Stein of her appointment.
She will attend the next board meeting, scheduled for March 21 at 5:30 p.m. in the media center at Revere High School, located 3420 Everett Road. Meetings are available for public viewing at www.revereschools.org/boardmeetings.
