HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y. -- Mehrdad Sanai is the newest member of the Wappingers Central School District Board of Education.

Sanai, a Hopewell Junction resident, was appointed to the nine-member board on Oct. 2. A 25-year resident of the district, Sanai's two children graduated from the district. His appointment came following the resignation of Tracy Pelton.

Sanai said he wanted to join the board to give back to the community. He said public education is where children learn how to live in a society.

“We don’t want our children to live in a bubble and then come out facing a different reality," Sanai said.

The district interviewed six other candidates besides Sanai.

“Mr. Sanai’s skill set will bring an added value to our Board," said President Peggy Kelland.

Sanai has more than thirty years’ experience in telecommunications and holds degrees in Physics and Computer Science. He will be sworn into office on Monday.
