Youngest Hazleton School Board Member Elected

 Screen shot 2013-11-06 at 4.40.46 PMNot even four years ago, Jared O’Donnell was sitting in the same seats as senior high school students sit in now.

It was at graduation from Hazleton Area High School, that he realized it was time for a change.

Now at just 21 years old and in his second attempt for public office, O’Donnell is a senior in college and will graduate next year with a finance and business degree and is set to become the youngest school board member the Hazleton Area District has ever had.

Hazleton School Board President Brian Earley says Jared is going to do what’s in the best interest for the school district and O’Donnell is the change the Board needs.

And while his opposing candidate Carmella Yenkevich had 12  years of experience on the school board, O’Donnell landed a seat on the board with almost 15 hundred more votes.

O’Donnell says he is excited and ready to make changes the school district needs.
