The Ewing Township Board of Education met virtually on January 4th to conduct the annual BOE reorganization meeting.
School Business Administrator/Board Secretary Dennis Nettleton opened the meeting and read into the record the official results of the November BOE election. He then conducted the oath of office for returning Board member Channing Conway, who was elected to his second term on the Board, and new members Jennifer Miller and Tyrone Miller.
