Chris Keller fills top spot after Heiligenthaler resigns

MEDINA – The Board of Education has a new leader after Carol Heiligenthaler resigned last month. The board last week voted to support Chris Keller as the new president.

He will be sworn in this evening at 6:30 during the BOE meeting at the district office. Keller had been vice president. He works as a teacher at Albion Central School.

Heiligenthaler led the board since July 2012. Although she resigned as BOE president, she has agreed to stay on as a board member.

Heiligenthaler has recently been hired as the business administrator for Barker Central School. She resigned as Medina BOE president due to the demands of her new job.

The BOE is expected to soon name a new vice president after Keller vacated the spot to become president.
