Zawtocki, Robb take Board spots
By Georgann Yara

January 21, 2006

There was a changing of the guard Jan. 10 when the Kyrene School District Governing Board elected Rich Zawtocki its president for 2006.
Law mandates that public school district governing boards elect a president and vice president for one-year terms at the first meeting of the year.

The board also elected newest member Ross Robb as vice president, the position Zawtocki held throughout last year. Zawtocki inherited the seat formerly occupied by board member Rae Waters.
Zawtocki has served on the Kyrene board since 2000 and is currently in his second four-year term. The attorney lives in Chandler with his wife and their four children, all of whom are graduates of or current students in Kyrene schools.

Born in raised in Michigan, Zawtocki attended the University of Notre Dame, where he earned a bachelorís degree in American studies with concentrations in literature and government. He went on to graduate from the University of Dayton Law School in Ohio.

Robb began his board service with Kyrene last summer, when Maricopa County Schools Superintendent Sandra Dowling appointed him to fill the seat left by former board member and Chandler resident John Doney. Robb beat out seven other candidates for the job.

A certified public accountant, Robb is a partner with Benton-Robb Development Associates LLP, a power-playing development firm responsible for numerous projects including downtown redevelopment in Chandler and Tempe. He has a bachelorís degree in business administration from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and a masterís degree in business administration from Arizona State University.

Robb lives in Tempe with his wife and two children, who are students in Kyrene schools.
