After the meeting, Harrison said that whether she was voted into the seat or D'Orazio, "it was going to work out well."
Harrison, who has been on the board for four years of a five-year term, said she is excited to be a part of such a wonderful district and great board. Harrison taught in the district for 34 years before becoming a member of the board.
She now works in the state Education Department in the field of state assessments and said her experience in education leaves her well-qualified for the position of board vice president.
She said she will do her best to bring her knowledge and experience to the board and bring continued quality in education to the students of the district.
"I'll do my best," she said before leaving the meeting.
Also at the meeting, Superintendent of Schools Randy Ehrenberg was sworn in for the ninth year.
"Over the past nine years, you have really provided a vision and leadership for this district," said Nardolillo, who swore Ehrenberg in. "It's really impressive the job you've done.""
