CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – Maryvale school board member Brian Pilarski, was unanimously selected as the next Maryvale Union Free School District Board of Education president during a board reorganization meeting on July 10, 2017.

Mr. Pilarski was elected to the school board in 2015. Since 2006, he has served as the Executive Director of the Seneca-Babcock Community Association in Buffalo.  Under his leadership, the SBCA has tripled in capacity and revenue.

Mr. Pilarski has led a distinguished career in his 18 years of human services, and before joining Seneca-Babcock, he served as a Commissioned Officer in the United States Army. Pilarski developed a strong sense of devotion for the nonprofit/education sector as a beneficiary of a youth program at the Buffalo Boys and Girls Club over 25 years ago. This experience gave him a deep appreciation for how nonprofits seek to improve the quality of life for our community.

“It’s an honor to have the rest of the board feel they trust me to lead,” Mr. Pilarski said. “I take the responsibility seriously.”

He succeeds Craig Meyers, who served as president during the 2016-17 fiscal year.
