My name is Allison Mathis, and I am a candidate for the position of President Elect of the PSBA Governing Board.

For the past two years I have served as Vice President of the PSBA Governing Board. I also chair the Bylaws Committee and Platform Committee and assisted in the 2022 Delegate Assembly. Prior to being elected Vice President of the Governing Board, I was a PSBA Sectional Advisor.

I live in Southwestern Pennsylvania, just north of Pittsburgh. I was elected to the North Hills School District Board of Education in 2017 and I have served as North Hills School District Board President since December of 2019. I previously chaired the district’s Education Committee and currently chair the Finance Committee. I am a member of various other district committees as well as an active parent volunteer. I am a dedicated school board member and exhibit professionalism in all circumstances. I also believe I bring this dedication and professionalism to my role on the PSBA Governing Board as Vice President.

Throughout my time on the school board, I have utilized and appreciated the resources, services, support, and expertise that PSBA offers. I truly believe that the support and education PSBA provides makes me a better board member and a better leader.

A graduate of The Johns Hopkins University, my professional background is in project management and communications. I have strong communication and interpersonal skills and enjoy getting to know new people. I am currently employed as a Client Services Manager for a brand and marketing agency in Pittsburgh.

I apply for the role of President Elect with no specific agenda, but for to further expand my advocacy for public education, and my involvement in PSBA. It would be my honor to represent the association and continue to champion the mission, vision, and values of PSBA.

Thank you for your consideration.
