HARRISBURG – Senator Rich Alloway II (R-33) applauded Senate confirmation today of five new members to serve on the Shippensburg University Council of Trustees.
Andrew Alosi was confirmed to fill the seat vacated by the passing of former state lawmaker Jeff Coy. Alosi is a Shippensburg University alumnus and a former member of the Shippensburg Area School District School Board. He currently works as a case manager for River Rock Academy in Newville.
“Drew has been a leader in the local education community for many years, and he has strong ties to the entire community as a whole,” Alloway said. “Based on his experience in supporting students at every level of education and his deep commitment to community service, I have every confidence that he will serve Shippensburg University extremely well.”
“The passing of Chairman Jeff Coy was a tremendous loss for Shippensburg University and the Shippensburg community. As my mentor and personal friend, Jeff taught me that finding solutions among division is the key to success and that cooperation and collaboration will attain far more positive results,” Alosi said. “I am wholeheartedly honored to fill Jeff Coy’s shoes to serve my alma Mater and community as Trustee.”
Other nominees who were confirmed included:
- Douglas Harbach, a former member of the Shippensburg University Council of Trustees, President of the General Alumni Association and Director of Communications for the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
- Bryan Lowe, Director of State Government Affairs for the Healthcare Distribution Alliance and former Government Relations Associate for the Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges.
- Antoinette Marchowsky, Special Assistant to Pennsylvania Senator Vincent Hughes and former Executive Director of the Philadelphia Delegation to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
- Matthew Steck, owner and partner of Greenlee Partners, LLC, and former Vice President of Government Relations for the Professional Insurance Agents Association of Pennsylvania.
“All of these candidates bring a great deal of expertise in a broad range of fields related to education and government,” Alloway said. “I look forward to seeing how their experience will help shape the future of Shippensburg University in the years to come.”
