OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) - On Wednesday night, Oregon's Board of Education voted unanimously to appoint a new president.
Mike Csehi will fill the unexpired term of Dick Gabel, which will end Dec. 31, 2013. The vacancy resulted from Gabel's resignation from the board due to health concerns.
The board of education selected Csehi from a pool of 10 potential candidates based upon his experience and knowledge of the district, along with his passion for working with children.
"Through an agreed-upon process, the Oregon City Board of Education was able to interview, discuss and collaboratively decide to appoint the candidate that was in the best interest of the students of the Oregon City Schools," said Diana Gadus, temporary president of the Oregon Board of Education.
Csehi is a former teacher in the Oregon School District. He worked at Clay High School as an industrial technology instructor and technology coordinator until his recent retirement after 35 years of service. He is presently working in the Kateri Catholic School District as director of technology. Csehi is a graduate of Clay High School and Bowling Green State University.
"I am honored to fill out Dick's term on the school board. I am confident that my experience in the district and knowledge of the community can help move the district forward," said Csehi.
Csehi will be sworn in by Oregon Mayor Mike Sefarian Friday at 9:30 a.m. at the Oregon Municipal Building in the Council Chambers. The public is invited to attend.
