Lordstown makes hiring official

LORDSTOWN — The Board of Education on Wednesday officially named Mineral Ridge resident Gregory Bonamase as the new Lordstown school superintendent.

Bonamase, who most recently served as a principal in the Girard school district, was granted a three-year, 260-day contract effective Aug. 1 to July 31, 2023, at $91,400 annually.

Bonamase was selected from 28 applicants who sought the position after former superintendent Terry Armstrong left in February to become treasurer for Newton Falls schools.

“I look forward to working with the board and all the staff in the district. I am very excited to be here,” Bonamase said.

Retired Mathews schools superintendent Lew Lowery has been serving as interim superintendent.

Board President Cheryl Kistler said they were impressed with Bonamase’s educational experience as an administrator.
