YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Cheryl Reynolds, a longtime leader of the Yorktown schools Parent Teachers Association, has been appointed to fill a vacant seat on the Yorktown Board of Education.
The seat became available when Trustee Peter Bisaccia resigned last month citing conflicts with his work schedule.
Reynolds has a long history of service with Yorktown schools. She is president of the PTA at Yorktown High School, president-elect at the Mildred E. Strang Middle School and was president at Crompond Elementary School.
“The current Board of Education and administration work together sharing strong leadership and collaborative skills. I would like to be a part of this team as they continuously move the district forward. My focus is multi-dimensional and I am interested in the success of all students in the district,” said Reynolds.
Active in local sports, she coaches soccer and basketball and was named Coach of the Year in 2013 by the Yorktown Youth Soccer Club. A mother of three students in fifth, seventh and 11th grades, Reynolds has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and a master’s in business administration with a concentration in marketing.
Reynolds will serve the remainder of Bisaccia’s term, which runs through June 2016. The three-year term position will then be filled through school board elections. She said she anticipates running for the open seat.
