The Rochester Community School District Board of Education on Tuesday, April 24, unanimously approved the selection of Rochester Hills resident Andrea Walker-Leidy to fill a vacancy on the board that will expire at the end of December 2018.
"Andrea fosters a spirit of collaboration and relationship building. We are confident that her skills, along with her personal, professional and philanthropic experience, will be an asset to our board and the Rochester Community School district," said school board President Sandy Fiaschetti.
Walker-Liedy will finish the term of Pat Piskulich, who resigned before the end of his term.
The board follows the state's Revised School Code and Michigan Election Law in appointing an eligible candidate to fill the position. Seven candidates were initially interviewed for the position, with three invited to return for second interviews prior to the selection.
Walker-Leidy is the development director for Meadow Brook Theatre and owner and operator of Walker Publicity Consulting.
"Andrea has a passion for our community. We are pleased to welcome her on board and look forward to working with her," said district superintendent Robert Shaner.
