ROCHESTER/ROCHESTER HILLS/OAKLAND TOWNSHIP — The Rochester Community Schools Board of Education has selected Scott Muska as its new trustee.

Muska was unanimously approved by the school board July 15 to fill the trustee position vacated by Sandy Fiaschetti, who moved to California for a career opportunity. Muska’s term will run through Dec. 31.

Eight candidates — Heidi Batt, Dana Cadman, Margaret Gilman, Meredith McCutcheon, Muska, Clint Rosenberg, Mark Anthony Torres and Thomas Yu — were interviewed for the appointment during the board meeting. Two individuals were then invited to return for a second interview before the selection was made.

Muska, a business owner and investor who has spent most of his career in business development and operations, came out on top. He also serves as a professional speaker, and is a former college and professional basketball assistant coach.

“It’s a blessing to be able to serve on the Board of Education. I’m excited to make a difference in our school community,” Muska said in a statement.

Muska and his wife, Barbara, live in Rochester with their 3-year-old daughter.

Board President Kristin Bull said Muska has strong business acumen.

“One of the things I was looking for is building relationships … especially in the business community. I think Soctt can help us with that tremendously,” she said during the meeting.

Bull said she is pleased to welcome Muska on the board, adding that he is a big-picture visionary and a humble team player.
