The North Royalton Board of Education held its organizational meeting on Thursday, January 9 in which Dr. John Kelly was sworn in as president and Heidi Dolezal as vice president.
Dr. Kelly began his service on the North Royalton School Board in 2012. This will be Dr. Kelly’s second year in a row as president. He also served as Board president in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2019 and two times as a Board vice president in 2017 and 2018. “I would like to thank the Board for their confidence in electing me to be president in 2020,” said Kelly. “It is an exciting time to be a member of the School Board as our construction moves quickly at the elementary and high school sites. I will continue to work diligently with all involved to make the process continue to stay on time and on budget.”
