St. Bernard schools try to fill vacancy

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        ST. BERNARD — The St. Bernard-Elmwood Place school board plans to meet next month to fill a vacancy created by board member John Estep's resignation.

        Citing personal reasons, Mr. Estep, 49, an assistant principal at Heritage Hill Elementary School in Springdale,resigned Monday. He held the position 15 months.

        “John has been an asset to the board because he has been an administrator in another district and has knowledge of education that is different from the average board member,” board President Linda Radtke said.

        Mr. Estep, a lifelong resident of St. Bernard, decided to run for school board because “I felt I owed something back to the district where I lived and graduated from.”

        “It's been a rewarding feeling to look at things from a different perspective, as a parent, an administrator and a board member,” he said.

        Mrs. Radtke said Mr. Estep's successor will finish out this year and then an election will be held in November to fill the remainder of the term.

        Applications will be accepted through May 7 at the board office.

        The board plans to meet at 5 p.m. May 10 in the Board of Education office, 105 Washington Ave., to fill the vacancy and conduct any other business.
