Ray McGarry

 
BIO
Ray has been serving as a member of the Abington Board of School Directors for nearly 20 years.  During that time, he has chaired or sat as a member of nearly every Committee of the Board. Ray has served as the President of the Board for the past 9 years.  During his tenure on the Board, the District has:
  • thrived academically (earning recognition with numerous state and national awards);
  • invested in its students and faculty (making sure they have all the resources and technology they need to achieve); and
  • invested in its school infrastructure (building 4 new elementary schools and making significant renovations to each of the other schools).
Significantly, the District has been able to achieve all of this in a fiscally prudent manner.  Ray is extremely proud of his service to the community over the past 20 years, and wishes to continue to serve.

In his professional life, Ray is a practicing attorney.  He has practiced in the area of commercial litigation for 25 years. He has his own boutique litigation firm, Brown McGarry Nimeroff LLC, based in Center City, Philadelphia. Ray is married and has three daughters, two of whom are graduates of Abington Senior High School, and the third is currently in her junior year at the high school.
Barry Stupine

 
BIO
Barry Stupine has served on the Abington/Rockledge School Board for nearly 24 years, serving as President, Vice President and chair of most committees.  During this time the School District has replaced or modernized all nine schools and built a state-of-the-art athletic facility. The District has won many prestigious awards from the State and Federal governments and from major national new media including Money magazine, U.S. News and World Report and from the not-for-profit organization America’s Promise. Between 2007 and 2012 the total tax increases have been only about 1%, one of the lowest in the Commonwealth. At the same time, the District continues to win national awards and no educational or extra-curriculum programs have been cut or curtailed.

After a 33 year career at the University of Pennsylvania, he retired.  During his tenure at Penn, Barry held many senior level executive positions.  These positions include Vice President for Human Resources, Executive Director of the Budget Office, Vice Dean of the Dental School, Vice Dean of the Veterinary School and CEO of the Veterinary Hospital.

His two children graduated from Abington High in the mid-nineties and have been successful in life using many of the skills learned in the Abington/Rockledge School District. He is proud of them and of the District.
Adam Share

 
BIO
Adam Share and his family have been township residents since 2002. Prior to moving to Abington, Adam, his wife Beth and sons lived in Cheltenham for ten years. In the 1990’s Adam served on the Cheltenham Township Citizens Advisory Board and later on the Economic Development Task Force. In 2003 Adam was appointed to a six-year term as representative at large to the SEPTA Citizen’s Advisory Committee. Adam is a graduate of Washington University and Villanova Law School and is in private law practice.  As a parent of two students who have graduated from the Abington schools, Adam closely watched the operation of McKinley Elementary, the junior high and high school, and took an active interest in school affairs from the academic, social and fiscal perspectives.  It is clear that the Abington School District is a primary reason for the high quality of life enjoyed by township residents, whether or not they have children enrolled in the district. Adam has spent his time as a school director learning the functioning of the district from the board level and contributing to board decision making through his positions on the curriculum, policy and property committees. Adam looks forward to continuing to help maintain the high quality of the Abington School District and keeping Abington a terrific place to live.
Josh Stein

 
BIO
Josh Stein has been an Abington resident since 2014. Like many others, he and his family were drawn to the township because of its reputation and excellent schools.

Josh has spent his entire professional life in public service, first as an Assistant City Solicitor for the City of Philadelphia, and then for the past five years, he has served as the First Assistant Solicitor for Montgomery County, helping in the turn-around of County government that had previously been beset by fiscal and ethical issues.  During this time, he focused much of his work on the areas of government transparency and best practices.

In January of 2016, Josh was appointed to the Abington School Board, bringing with him fifteen years of experience in the areas of public records, finance and contracts, government procurement, public pensions, economic development and real estate.  He was sworn in with the commitment to ensure the continued investment in the public school system that has brought Abington schools national recognition.

As the father of three boys, all of whom are students in the Abington School District, he is motivated to ensure that Abington’s reputation continues to grow as each graduating class enters to wider world beyond the school district’s borders.
