    USCHS administrator selected to PA Principals Association Board of Directors

    Dan Beck The Pennsylvania Principals Association recently named Daniel J. Beck, Upper St. Clair High School assistant principal, to its newly established Assistant Principal at Large board position.

    In his new role, Mr. Beck will represent the perspective of assistant principals as related to the work of an educational leader in today’s schools; serve as a key practitioner’s voice on the Board of Directors relating to the role of assistant principal; as well as providing information and input related to the needs and concerns of assistant principals.

    “He brings to the association a passion for reaching those in the assistant principal position and his past experience and ideas for recruiting and retaining fellow assistant principals,” Paul M. Healey, Ph.D., executive director of the Pennsylvania Principals Association, said.

    Mr. Beck joined the Upper St. Clair High School leadership staff in 2013. Previously, he taught secondary English in the Greensburg Salem School District and the Berlin Brothers Valley School District.

    He holds a bachelor’s degree in secondary English education from Duquesne University; a master’s of education from the University of Pittsburgh; and is currently a doctoral and Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility candidate at Duquesne University.

    The Assistant Principal at Large board position is one of two newly established positions on the association’s board of directors. Eduardo L. Antonetti, supervisor of curriculum and assessment at Mid Valley Secondary Center in the Mid Valley School District in Throop, Pa., was recently appointed as the Diversity At Large board member.

    “We are delighted with the addition of these two important positions on the Board of Directors,” Dr. Healey said. “They will bring a very vital and unique set of experiences and both will provide a very important voice to be heard as a part of our board.”

    Both board members will serve two-year terms.
