After being appointed the newest Mentor School Board member, Andrew J. Sparacia said he is used to "pretty hectic situations."
"I've been in a lot of charged environments," said Sparacia, a Concord Township resident who operates a financial and tax consulting business with a former colleague.
Sparacia was appointed to the board at a special meeting Wednesday night.He replaces Deborah Lucci, whose resignation from the board became effective March 1.
Sparacia's appointment was approved 3-0, with board President Charleen Gawronski, Vice President Arthur Kless and board member Alan J. Mihok voting in favor of the action.
Sparacia, 37, and his wife, Deborah, have three sons and a daughter who either are or will be attending Mentor Schools.
Sparacia spent several years as a tax consultant with Ernst & Young before he was hired by Mentor-based STERIS Corp. as its manager of corporate taxes in 1996.
In 2000, he began to perform tax consulting services, and two years later, he started in his current job, in which he caters to large, middle-market and Fortune 1000 companies.
He said he never had aspirations to be a school board member until the recent financial crisis arose in the Mentor School District.
"I was brought up in a household where my father taught me in order to complain, you have to be willing to do something," Sparacia said.
Gawronski said Sparacia "adds another dimension to the board" as a lawyer with an extensive background working in business.
