WARREN, NJ - The Watchung Hills Regional High School Board of Education swore in three members to three-year terms at its last meeting --including the senior class president, who is the youngest elected official in New Jersey. Lisa DeMizio, Peter Fallon and Freddie Hayeck were sworn in by Business Administrator Tim Stys. Fallon was selected as the new president of the board and Chris Collins was selected as vice president.
Both DeMizio and Fallon ran unopposed in November and are returning board members. Hayeck, also the senior class president, was sworn on to his first term after defeating longtime board member Sondra Fechtner in November to represent the Borough of Watchung and become the youngest elected official in the state.
Fallon will be serving his 11th term on the board representing Warren Township and DeMizio began her third consecutive term representing Long Hill Township. Collins also represents Long Hill Township.
The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the south auditorium.
