The Madison Board of Education is expected to welcome a new president and swear in three new members Friday at 7 p.m. during its annual reorganization meeting inside the Madison High School media center. 

Originally slated for Jan. 4, the meeting was postponed last week due to inclement weather. 

Leslie Lajewski is expected to be voted in as the new Board president, and Lisa Ellis, who currently leads the Board, will step down to serve as vice president, Ellis confirmed on Monday.

Ellis has served as Board president since 2005 and on Nov. 13 was unanimously appointed by the borough council as Madison’s first director of business. 

Newly-elected Board members David Irwin, Heather Reddy and Pamela Yousey will take their seats for the first time on Friday.

Rose City voters chose Irwin, Reddy and Yousey on Election Day Nov. 7 over incumbent Debra Coen and first-time runner Curtis Gilfillan for three open spots on the Board. Coen lost her seat to Irwin by just five votes.
