Congratulations to Jennifer Cohen, new Orange School Board member

From the Orange Schools website:
The Orange City School District Board of Education announced today that it has selected Ms. Jennifer Cohen to serve the remainder of the term vacated by Mr. Stanley Morganstern. That term expires December 31, 2013. She will be sworn in at the Board meeting on February 13, 2012.

Cohen is a 13 year resident of Orange Village where she and her husband reside with their three children, who attend Orange Schools. She has served on the board of the Orange Schools Foundation for five years, including the last three years as Co-President and grant committee chair. She is currently on Orange High School’s After-Prom committee and is a hospitality co-chair. Cohen is a volunteer with the OHS swim team and with Stagecrafters theater group through Orange Community Education and Recreation.

She has worked for 25 years in Human Resources Management and currently is the Professional Personnel Director for The Jewish Federation of Cleveland. She has a Bachelors of Science degree from The Ohio State University. She is involved in numerous community organizations.
“Jennifer is an excellent addition to the Orange Board of Education,” said Mr. Sam Steinhouse, Orange Board of Education President. “Her personal and professional experience will definitely be an asset to our schools.”

Cohen was one of 16 residents who applied for the open seat. Morganstern stepped down from the school board effective January 16, 2012. He cited the winding down of his Ohio based law practice and his plans to spend most of his time in Arizona as the reason for his resignation. 
I served with Jennifer on the Orange Schools Foundation and am sure she will do a great job.  Good luck to her and the board as they proceed.
