CHATHAM, NJ - Three board members were sworn in at the Board of Education meeting for the Chathams on Monday evening.

Business Administrator, Peter Daquila, swore in incumbents Phil Franz, Matthew Gilfillan, and John Nonnemacher for an additional term on the Board of Education.

Thomas Belding was also voted in to remain the board’s president (7-1) and Jill Weber was also voted in to remain the vice president (8-0).

An additional vote was taken to try a trial period of moving the Board of Education’s meetings on Wednesday night in a hope to not clash with the Borough’s council meetings. This passed 9-0

Several announcements were made as well. The women’s golf team is the most successful spring sport in its second year, with a 8-1 record.

The Panasonic Robotics contest was also held with 28 schools competing in New Jersey. Chatham students had to build a working robot and won. Each of the three students received a $4,000 prize. The students, at the next Board of Education meeting on May 13, will hold a demonstration of the robot.

Nine students who mad it through the highly competitive auditions for the All State Corus were selected to be members this year.
