MILLBURN, NJ – A reception was held at the Millburn Education Center prior to the annual reorganization meeting to welcome new and returning board members to the inaugural meeting of the year.  Freshman board member Jennifer Woodhouse Thielen joins returning board members Michael King and Emily Jaffe. The three won their elections to the board in an uncontested race last November, each garnering over 5,000 votes.

After swearing in the newly elected members, the board unanimously elected Emily Jaffe to serve as president of the Millburn Board of Education for the 2017 term. Jaffe had served as vice president in 2016.

Jesse Liu in a unanimous vote by his peers was elected to serve as the BOE vice president.
