Cinnaminson School Board Member Harry Shea considers serving on the board as a "high calling."
"I have a deep interest in serving, being a lifelong resident of this community and a student of the district," he explained.
...
Shea said he wants to be a part of the major issues facing the district just over the horizon, including the capital projects-the district is still waiting to find out how much money the state is going to grant-and upcoming contract negotiations with the education association (the current contract expires on. June 30, 2014).
...
Shea serves on the curriculum committee, and at one point or another has served on every school board committee there is, "including some that don't exist anymore," he said.
"We have a great district," he said. "The work we do has a lasting impact on the students and a very definite impact on the community."
Shea is one of three candidates running unopposed for three open seats on the board of education.
Former school board President Harry ...

Former school board President Harry Shea did not seek re-election this year and ends his two-decade tenure.
...
In the 21 years Harry Shea served on the Cinnaminson Township Board of Education, he only missed one meeting.
"I was serious about the job," said Shea.
After more than two decades on the board, 15 of them as president, Shea decided it was finally time to not run again, something he'd been saying for the last three terms.
"I kept saying it would be my last," Shea said. "I truly thought I would grow tired of it and there would be other anxious people to get on. But, I was still interested."
Shea first came onto the board in 1990, when his now 30-year-old daughter was in first grade. He grew up in Cinnaminson but had moved to Palmyra for 10 years. He and his wife wanted their daughter in the Cinnaminson school district, so they bought a house here.
Back then, Shea had heard rumors the Cinnaminson, Riverton and Palmyra school districts were merging.
"I started going to board meetings to find out more about it. It never did come for board discussion," he said. "It was a rumor that was unfounded."
But, he said, he got excited attending those meetings. So, he ran himself and won.
"I always felt it was the most important committee you can serve on at the local level," Shea said.
Shea served as vice president for a few years, and then took over as board president in 1995. With only one year off as president since then, his last board meeting was in April.
But, some of the biggest challenges Shea faced were early on in his school board career, he said. Five budgets in a row in the 1990s were defeated and drastic slashes seemed inevitable.
"I think we were able to do it," Shea said. "We were able to maintain most of the programs. I was proud of being able to do that-not really impacting education negativity in the fact of a lot of cuts."
Shea also calls the hiring of Superintendent Sal Illuzzi in 2000 as one of his greatest accomplishments.
...
Shea said he's also been extremely happy with the administrative positions he's helped to hire.
"They, in turn, have hired a very good staff," Shea said.
He attributes it to the extensive interview process for teaching positions.
"When you go through that process, you get good people," he said.
Recently, the personal tragedies in the school district have been challenging, he said. Just this school year alone, the district was forced to deal with the untimely deaths of two teachers and a student.
"To respond to it properly took a lot of effort and planning to get the right people to be able to help the staff and students get through tragic circumstances," he said. "That challenge was uncharted territory throughout the board. It takes a lot out of you."
Two of the came in the middle of budget time, and Shea said the budget took a backseat. The budget was by voters on April 27 by 22 votes, but Shea said he wouldn't trade it.
"If the budget was a victim of that, so be it," he said.
Now, Shea can focus on his business and his family, and said he hopes to be involved somehow; but he's not going to become the 10th member of the board.
"I will be around and maybe I can do some volunteering in another capacity," he said.
...
I first met Harry on the school playground when we were in 4th grade. We did all the usual childhood adventures with Cub Scouts, little league and being in the 2nd graduating class of CHS. As adults we were there for marriages, babies and the passing of parents. Harry was on the Board for all the right reasons and stayed for all the right reasons. When I was a teacher and he was the Board President we did not always agree. But in our disagreements we were never disagreeable. That is a trait that is seriously lacking in today's world. Harry is indeed a fair and caring volunteer in Cinnaminson. I respect and appreciate all that he has done. Thank you, Harry!

Teacher praised for his competence in Cinna.

Harry Shea, president of the Cinnaminson Board of Education, said he was unaware of the allegations against DeShan before the news reports were published Friday.
"I'm not aware of any problems with him at all," Shea said."My comment would be, this is a personnel matter, and the Board of Education leaves these matters to the central administrative office.In hiring teachers, school boards generally aren't involved."
As school let out Friday afternoon, most teachers and parents refused to comment about DeShan's past.
One parent did, however, agree to speak about DeShan, saying she didn't know the whole story and questioned how she could pass judgment on him.
