CTC to promote business manager

The Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center Board of Education soon will vote to make Business Manager Anthony Fraley its next treasurer, said board President Donna Myers.

Fraley, 33, will replace Treasurer Pamela Mustovich, who resigned to retire after 14 years with the CTC. Mustovich previously has worked at Tecumseh and Springboro schools.

The board is expected to vote at a May 13 meeting to make Fraley the treasurer.

While at the CTC, Mustovich worked to build the district’s funding reserves to make the school more financially secure, said Myers.

“She built our reserves through all the things that treasurers do,” she said. “I guess we’re as secure as a district can be right now. I think (Fraley) will be quite an asset to follow Pam.”

Fraley came to the CTC in 2003 as the school’s assistant treasurer and then became business manager in 2006. He holds a treasurer and business manager license through the state, according to the Ohio Department of Education.

The CTC will combine the business manager and treasurer positions into one to cut costs, said Myers.

As treasurer, Mustovich, who previously retired and was rehired to the position, earned $88,863. Fraley’s salary as business manager is $76,756.

“We’ve combined several positions over the time I’ve been there as a way to be core cost effective and efficient with all the changes in funding and everything,” Myers said.

Fraley is an active member of the Ohio Association of School Business Officials, the professional organization representing Ohio’s treasurers and business managers, and a member of the Miami Valley School Business Officials and the Association of School Business Officials, said Myers. He recently completed his master’s degree in business administration with a concentration in management.

As business manager, Fraley, a Tecumseh graduate, oversaw a $3.5 million building project at the CTC and has led the renegotiation of several contracts to be more favorable for the district, said Myers.

Fraley’s familiarity with the CTC will be an asset in the position, Myers said.

“Anthony is a very dynamic, energetic person,” she said. “He always gives at least 150 percent.”

The CTC board will meet at 5 p.m. May 13 in the administration building at the CTC, 1901 Selma Road.
