NEWS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter is pleased to announce the appointment of Edward Borowski to the Beaver Creek Elementary School District Governing Board. This vacancy is due to the resignation of Board Member Betty Hart, due to medical reasons. It was effective on February 11, 2020. We thank Mrs. Hart for her service to the school and community and wish her the very best.
Mr. Carter posted the position on that date, seeking letters of interest and resumes from those eligible voters in the district who were interested in being considered for the position. Mr. Carter interviewed those that applied on March 11, 2020 at Beaver Creek School and spoke individually with the elected Board Members and administration about their thoughts of who should be appointed.
Mr. Borowski graduated from St. Peters High School in Jersey City, New Jersey before earning an Associate of Arts Degree in Business from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He then completed his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maine in Business Education / Math.
Mr. Borowski spent some time as an accountant and financial consultant before completing twenty-one (21) years teaching Math and Technology in Maine, primarily at the high school level. He also coached soccer, baseball and debate. He retired in 2008 and moved to the Rimrock area, where he volunteers many hours per week with Beaver Creek Transit and Northern Arizona Healthcare. He is the Treasurer of St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church and the Beaver Creek Historical Society. He is divorced with two (2) grown children and three (3) grandchildren.
The appointment will be effective March 12, 2020, upon taking the oath of office, and will expire on December 31, 2020. Mr. Borowski has said he plans to run for the continuing Governing Board seat during the 2020 election cycle which, if elected, begins January 1, 2021.
Superintendent Carter said that “he is convinced that Mr. Borowski will serve the public well. He has a solid understanding of educational issues and finance and his concern for the wellbeing of the community and residents is obvious”. Mr. Carter stated that “Edward’s interview was one of the very best he had ever seen in the fifteen (15) years he has been in office”.
