Winchester School Board Member Stepping Down

21 September 2018 News

A member of Winchester’s School Board is stepping down at the end of the month.

Phillip “P.J.” Lewis has decided to move to Ward 4, and therefore will no longer represent Ward 1 on Winchester’s School Board. Lewis was appointed to the role by City Council after being interviewed, and served one year of his four-year term in the position; as a member, he played a part in directing the school district’s 600 employees, and helped to organize $48 million in expenditures.

Lewis was quoted as saying that if a seat opens in Ward 4, he may consider applying for it. In a Monday meeting, Winchester Public Schools Superintendent Jason Van Heukelum said that it has been a pleasure working alongside Lewis, and that he had a passion for student engagement.
