The vacancy on the North Penn School Board has been filled. Lansdale resident Cory Brown was appointed Thursday night.
Brown had the support of five of the seven school board members at the meeting. The other two votes went to Montgomery Township resident Tina Stoll, a candidate that came up short in the last two elections. Brown was present during the selection process and expressed excitement about his appointment.
“It was definitely exciting. I really appreciate the vote of support that came from the board and I’m really hoping that I’ll be able to live up to their expectations.”
Brown will serve in his capacity as an appointed school board member for the next 16-months. He is a republican and says he might consider running for a term in his own right next year. Brown is employed at Merck & Co. as a chemical engineer.
