The Seneca Valley School District has hired a new employee, as well as recently accepted a donation from a local bank.
During a meeting on Monday, board members approved the appointment of Randy Miller as the district’s new buildings and grounds director.
Miller comes to Seneca Valley from the corporate sector where he has worked for the past two years as a project manager for FedEx Ground Corp. in Moon Township. During his time there, he has been responsible for managing the development and design of facilities, sites, buildings and material handling systems for expansions and new hubs/stations for the entire gulf region. Mr. Miller’s extensive experience includes working with all phases of design and construction, including project budgets.
Additional experience includes seven years working as director of construction administration at Architectural Innovations in Pittsburgh; four years as project manager with Eckles Architecture in New Castle; two years as project manager and specifications writer for Foreman Architect and Engineers in Zelienople; and 14 years as project manager and architect for Richard N. Manns, Architect P.C. in Munhall.
“We welcome Mr. Miller’s experience and expertise from the architectural/construction industry, especially as we embark on two large building projects in the District,” said Dr. Tracy Vitale, Superintendent of Schools. “He brings to the table a wealth of knowledge that will allow us to move through the foreseeable future in a smooth and effective way.”
Miller earned his Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies from the University of Pittsburgh. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects and the Construction Specifications Institute. Mr. Miller replaces Mr. Robert Cook, who resigned earlier this month to pursue other professional opportunities.
Farmers National Bank officials donated a $4,000 check to the Seneca Valley Foundation (SVF) through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program grant on Jan. 4.
A statewide program, EITC enables businesses to make donations to organizations they choose from a Commonwealth – approved list. EITC is a statewide initiative enacted by the PA Department of Community and Economic Development in 2001. EITC enables eligible businesses, like Farmers National Bank, to apply credits against their tax liability for the tax year in which they make a contribution to support education in Pennsylvania. Farmers National Bank has participated in this program since 2001.
“On behalf of the Bank’s Board of Directors, management and staff, I am pleased to provide the enclosed contribution,” stated William C. Marsh, The Farmers National Bank of Emlenton President and Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. “We look forward to continuing our support of such local scholarship funds and charities in our service areas under this tax credit and other charitable contribution programs.”
Specifically, Farmers National Bank’s EITC donation will benefit Science, Technology, and Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) classes at Seneca Valley.
