BOE appoints Eileen Hillock to board
At an additional meeting of the Glen Rock Board of Education on Nov. 10, Eileen Hillock was appointed by unanimous vote to replace Robin Rubinstein. The decision was made following a 90-minute group interview of the six residents who had applied for the position and a 60-minute deliberation period by the board.
Rubinstein resigned from the board at the Oct. 5 general meeting due to health reasons. State regulations required that the BOE appoint a trustee to replace her.
Hillock will serve until the BOE reorganization meeting in January of 2017, unless she chooses to run for either what would then be a one-year unexpired term or a full three-year term.
The applicant pool included Hillock, Angela Bender, Theodore Jadick, Virginia Lincoln, Jeffrey Lipson and Laura Rundle.
Business Administrator/Board Secretary Michael Rinderknecht swears in Eileen Hillock following her appointment by the BOE.
