Dear School Community,

I wanted to update you on a significant change that took place at last night's School Board reorganization meeting. Rosemary Fiumara stepped down as President and was replaced by Scott Mayer, who has served the Board since 2010 and was most recently in the role of Vice President. Tracy Karwoski will move back into the role of Vice President going forward.

Scott Mayer and his wife Lori are the proud parents of two GVSD students, so he brings an important "parent lens" to his work as President. Additionally, Scott's experience and expertise as the Regional Vice President of Labor and Employee Relations for the InterContinental Hotels Group also gives the Board an important legal perspective. Scott has a strong belief in public education as his mother was a teacher, and his schooling prepared him for success as a graduate of Cornell University and Villanova University School of Law.

I am extremely excited to work more closely with Scott, and of course will miss my daily interactions with Rosemary. Serving as the President since 2012, Rosemary will continue as a member of the Board. She and I worked together for my entire career in Garnet Valley, and it is difficult for me to express how much I appreciated her leadership and friendship over the past 7 years. For those of you who do not have a great deal of interaction with the School Board, it's easy to underestimate the positive impact a great Board can have on a district. We are fortunate in Garnet Valley that through Rosemary's character, caring, and leadership, we have a Board, that philosophically and financially, supports our commitment to personalized student and adult learning, a safe and caring culture that prepares students for global citizenship, and provides our faculty and staff with everything that they need to provide the very best education for our students. If you see Rosemary, I ask that you take the time to thank her for all that she did and does for GVSD.

Have a great holiday season!!


Dr. Marc Bertrando, GVSD Superintendent

Garnet Valley School Board members, Rosemary Fiumara and Bob Anderson, thanked Gov.
