CPE welcomes new Board member

We’re pleased to welcome Don Martin, Ed.D., Executive Director of Intermediate Unit 1, to our Board of Directors. His appointment was approved in July.

“We’ve always valued Don’s insight and we’ll certainly benefit from his extensive experience in education, both in the classroom and at the administrative level,” said The Consortium’s Executive Director Mary Kay Babyak. “Don’s work with IU 1 and the districts it serves also brings us perspective we value from partners in neighboring counties.” One of 29 intermediate units across the state, IU 1 serves Fayette, Greene and Washington counties.

Martin became IU 1’s Executive Director last year, after serving as Assistant Executive Director for nearly a decade. Prior to joining IU 1, he was Superintendent of Frazier School District. In addition to Frazier, he served as an administrator in two other districts, East Allegheny and California, and before that, spent 12 years as an elementary school teacher.
