Cover story: Passing the Torch 

It was a fairly typical summer at PSEA. The annual state budget drama was playing out at the Capitol, the Gettysburg Summer Leadership Conference was approaching, and the thermometer was soaring.

But it would turn out to be anything but normal. PSEA President Jerry Oleksiak was approached by Gov. Tom Wolf to become state secretary of labor and industry.

Oleksiak and new PSEA President Dolores McCracken sat down with Voice to discuss these changes and the future of the Association.

"This was never part of the plan. Twenty-five years ago, I got involved, and I ended up making a lifelong habit of it.

I saw an opportunity to make a difference, and I went for it. I became president of the association, bringing parents, guardians, and other family members together with educators and support professionals to make our school the best it could be.

I could not have predicted then that I’d become president of PSEA more than two decades later, but here I am. It’s been something of an unexpected journey."
