Board Fills Vacant Seat

The Phelps-Clifton Springs Board of Education appointed Lindsay Marino during its August 23 meeting to fill a seat on the Board left vacant after the resignation of Sheri Scherbyn.

Scherbyn, who was first elected in 2008, had resigned her post on July 15.

"We thank Sheri for her several years of outstanding service and dedication to our students, families, teachers, and staff at Midlakes," said Jake Amidon, Board of Education president. "While we will miss Sheri’s input and experience on the Board, we are excited to welcome Lindsay, who is a parent, active volunteer, and member of the community, to continue our important work moving the District forward."

Marino is a registered pediatric nurse and the assistant nurse manager of the Pediatric Emergency Department at the Golisano Children’s Hospital in Rochester. The Phelps resident has three children in the District.

Marino, who ran for the Board in May, took the oath of office during the August meeting. She was unanimously appointed by the Board to hold office until the May election.
