With the introduction of the Beaver County Head Start into the Private Industry Council’s Early Childhood Development Division, we immediately saw the need to have representation from Beaver County on our organization’s board of directors. As a result, we are pleased to announce that we have added a thirteenth member to our board—Dr. Eric Rosendale, the executive director of the Beaver Valley Intermediate Unit (BVIU).

Dr. Rosendale earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from Geneva College in Elementary Education and started his career as a fourth grade teacher in Spring Lake, North Carolina. He then transferred back to Pennsylvania to teach second grade and elementary computers in Beaver County.

After earning a master’s degree in Education from the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Rosendale started working for the BVIU in 2000 as an instructional technology specialist. After earning his doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh in Administration and Policy Studies, he became the assistant executive director of the BVIU and most recently has been commissioned as the executive director (starting July 1, 2013).

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Rosendale to our board. We have had the honor of working with him during the transition period into our new role as grantee for the Beaver County Head Start. Dr. Rosendale is a strong partner in reaching out to Beaver County Head Start families and community collaborators, and we are excited to have him as a member of our board of directors.
