BERNARDS TWP., NJ - Two of three board members re-elected to full three-year terms on the Board of Education were sworn in on Jan. 3 at the board's reorganization meeting. Board member Michael Byrne, who was also re-elected in November, was not at the meeting.

However, Schools Superintendent Nick Markarian said Byrne will be sworn into his new term either at the next school board meeting, scheduled for Jan. 23 at the William Annin Middle School, if not sooner at the board office. 

Board members Karen Gray and Rhonda Dunten took the oath of office at the board's annual reorganization meeting, held last week at Ridge High School.

Board president and vice-president reappointed

Board members also reappointed Board President Beverly Cwerner and Board Vice-President Linda Wooldridge to those positions for the next year.

Gray was appointed to fill a vacancy on the board in summer 2014. She was elected to fill a two-year unexpired term, and sworn in on Jan. 5, 2015.

Dunten was appointed to fill a vacancy in January 2016 to fill an 11-month vacancy. Byrne is closing in on his 30th year on the school board.

Following the oaths of office for Dunten and Gray, Cwerner noted her appreciation of the time and effort that both newly sworn in board members have committed to in serving students. Cwerner's comments were echoed by Markarian

"I wish us all a safe, happy and healthy new year," Markarian added during his comments. "We really have a lot of things cooking," he said, adding he is looking forward to working with the board in the year ahead.
