MEDINA – In January Chris Keller stepped in as president of the Board of Education after Carol Heiligenthaler resigned from the position due to increasing job responsibilities as the business administrator at Barker Central School.

Keller impressed his colleagues on the board in the past six months. Last week they supported him for a full year as board president in 2014-15.

The board also elected David Sevenski as vice president. Keller, a teacher at Albion, served in that role until he became president of the BOE in January.

The board also welcomed a new member during its organizational meeting last week. Renee Paser-Paull was elected to a one-year position in May. She fills a vacancy created by the resignation of Rosalind Lind.
