"It is a privilege, as a Norristown Area High School graduate from the Class of 1981, to give back to my school and community through my service as an elected School Board Director and now as Norristown Area School District school board president for the 2013 term," said Assenmacher, according to the Herald. "I am honored to serve in such a capacity and have high expectations for our school board, our students and our great Norristown community."
