The Pennsbury school board added a new school director from a field of numerous applicants to complete the nine-member board at the public meeting on Dec. 17.
Filling the Region 3 vacancy created by Christian Schwartz’s recent resignation is former school director Linda L. Palsky, who served previously from 1999-2011. The term will run through November 2021.
During her 12 years of service on the board, Palsky took many leadership roles, including president, vice president and chairperson of multiple board committees. She was actively involved in employee contract negotiations, facilities renovations and two superintendent searches.
She is a 41-year resident of Lower Makefield Township and the parent of three Pennsbury High School graduates.
“On behalf of the administrative team, we look forward to partnering with Ms. Palsky, as well as the entire board, to successfully accomplish the district’s ongoing goals and strategies,” said Pennsbury Superintendent Dr. William Gretzula.
