Submitted by the Hopewell Valley Regional School District:

The Hopewell Valley Regional School District Board of Education is pleased to announce the appointment of John Slotman to fill a one-year term following the resignation of Andrea Driver. The decision follows an extensive and thoughtful deliberation process, during which the Board considered several highly qualified candidates.

Mr. Slotman brings a wealth of experience and a deep commitment to the Board. With a background in Public Policy and Government Affairs, he has a level of expertise that we believe will complement the efforts of the Board.

The Board of Education interviewed five stellar candidates. After a thorough review of applicants, the interview process, and careful consideration of each candidate’s qualifications, the Board of Education is confident that Mr. Slotman’s expertise and dedication will contribute to the continued success of the Hopewell Valley School District.

Board President Anita Williams Galliano expressed the Board’s enthusiasm for Mr. Slotman’s appointment, stating, “Unexpected change is rarely easy, but I’m so proud of the Hopewell Valley community for stepping up with five strong and well-prepared candidates for the open Board position for 2024. I’m equally proud of the hard work taken on by the board to identify the best fit for our current body of work and open committee seats. I look forward to working with John Slotman and welcome him on board.”

Board Member Mark Peters shared about the recent appointment, “Hopewell Valley remains one of the hidden gems of New Jersey, with our school system solidified as one of the vertebrates in the backbone of what makes our community so special. As part of our state-mandated process to fill the recently vacated Board seat, all Board members spent considerable time speaking to those candidates interested in filling the vacant seat.  Each candidate who volunteered to participate in the process brought forth their own set of skills and passion for how they would successfully fulfill their obligations to the Community and the Board if selected. After considerable deliberation, a majority decision was made to select John Slotman for the open position. We look forward to welcoming him to the Board and the immediate contributions he’ll bring to serving our community.”

Superintendent Dr. Rosetta Treece shared: “I was very impressed with the quality and number of community members who offered to serve. The decision was not an easy one for the board with such a wealth of very qualified and talented candidates. I do not doubt that Mr. Slotman will be an excellent addition to the Board and I look forward to working with him.”

The one-year term filled by Mr. Slotman is an important position within the Board, with responsibility for policy development and decisions that directly impact the educational journey of students in the district. The board is optimistic that Mr. Slotman’s insight and collaborative approach will strengthen the ongoing efforts to provide an exceptional learning environment for all Hopewell Valley students.

Mr. Slotman expressed gratitude for the opportunity to serve the community, stating, “I am honored and excited that the Board has chosen me as a member of our Hopewell Valley Regional Board of Education.  I look forward to working with the Board in support of HVRSD students, families, and educators, and thank the Board for their deliberative process in filling this Board vacancy. “

The Hopewell Valley School District Board of Education extends its appreciation to all candidates who expressed interest in serving on the Board. The selection process was rigorous, and the board is grateful for the commitment and passion demonstrated by all applicants.
