Board Appoints New Board of Education Member

On June 22, 2021, after an extensive review of candidates, the Board unanimously appointed Mr. Daniel Gallo, to the vacant Board of Education seat created by Mr. Scott Jones' retirement. Mr. Gallo was sworn in and took the Oath of Office that was administered by the Board Secretary, Mr. Robert F. Wachter, at the Hattie Britt Board of Education Building.

Mr. Gallo and his wife have been involved in the schools and currently are parents in the Mount Laurel School District. Mr. Gallo has a strong desire to contribute to the schools and the Mount Laurel Community. We ask you to join us in welcoming Mr. Gallo to the Mount Laurel Board of Education.

The Board of Education extends their sincere thanks to all the interested community members who submitted their interest to serve on the Board.
