MUHLENBERG TWP., Pa. — The Muhlenberg School Board voted Wednesday night to hire Frank Vecchio as the assistant principal at the high school.
Vecchio, who is currently a teacher in the Exeter Township School District, will be paid an annual salary of $82,400.
Muhlenberg Superintendent Joseph E. Macharola said Vecchio will begin his new post as soon as Exeter agrees to release him from his current position.
Vecchio said he is excited to join the team at Muhlenberg.
"I spoke with teachers in the district, and everyone spoke highly of the district, and that's not common in this day and age," Vecchio said. "The teachers are excited and so is the administration. I am ready to go."
Vecchio will replace Eric Schaeffer.
The board also accepted Schaeffer's resignation Wednesday night.
