RANDOLPH, NJ- On Tuesday evening,  the Randolph Board of Education held a public panel interview for the vacant spot on the board—previously held by Christopher Treston.

The three individuals vying for the spot were Dorene Roche, Ricardo Rodriguez, and Eliza Schleifstein.

After interviews were held, the BOE moved to a closed session for discussion, which was followed by a nomination and vote for the nominee.

Anne Standridge nominated Dorene Roche to fill the seat, which was then voted on by the Board members. If Roche received five votes, a majority, then she was to be ultimately selected.

All Board of Education members voted “Yes”, with the exception of Dr. Robert Soni and Jeanne Stifelman.

Dorene Roche currently has one child in the Randolph Township School District, as well as two Randolph High School graduates. She also has a vested interest in the Special Education Department, and she looks forward to working with the Randolph Board of Education.

Roche inherits the span of time left on the term for the seat previously held by Treston.
