Submitted By Rick La Plante
Michael Ritchie, who has served on site councils at two schools and is one of the founding members of the New Haven Boosters Association, was selected to fill an upcoming vacancy on the Board of Education.
Mr. Ritchie will complete the term being vacated by Board Clerk Kevin Harper who is resigning, effective at the end of the calendar year, because he and his wife are moving out of the District. Mr. Ritchie will serve through the November 2012 election, when the seat will be one of three on the ballot.
A marketing consultant and the father of two sons who attend James Logan High School, Mr. Ritchie served as School Site Council (SSC) chair at Cesar Chavez Middle School and is a member of the SSC at Logan. He also helped found the Boosters Association, which raises funds for extra-curricular and co-curricular activities throughout the District. He also is a member of the New Haven Schools Foundation, and he volunteered on the Measure B parcel tax campaign last spring.
Mr. Ritchie will be sworn in January 17, during the Board's first meeting of 2012.
