Area officials graduate from PSATS Municipal Government Academy

Three area public officials recently graduated from the PSATS Municipal Government Academy (PMGA), a leadership and municipal education program of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS).

Daniel Boyle, supervisor of Pennsbury Township, Kristy Deischer-Eddy, executive assistant of Honey Brook Township and Barbara J. Kelley, Manager of West Pikeland Township were honored as part of the 2023 class of PMGA graduates that received diplomas and certificates of completion April 24 during the association’s Annual Educational Conference in Hershey.

“PSATS launched the Municipal Government Academy several years ago to give township officials and staff a leg up on performing their duties,” PSATS Executive Director David Sanko says. “In the academy, education in leadership and communication skills overlaps the training in four technical tracks: administration, planning and zoning, public safety, and public works.”

PMGA participants earn primary, secondary, and elective points by attending classroom workshops and webinars and other PSATS educational opportunities, such as the Annual Educational Conference, Human Resources and Labor Management Institute, Boot Camp for Township Officials, and Grassroots Advocacy Day.

In this year’s graduating class, 10 individuals, including Boyle, Deischer-Eddy and Kelley, completed the diploma program by earning 60 points from across the four tracks. Nine individuals completed the certificate program by earning 30 points in the administration or tracks.
