Wendell Pritchett, the newest member to join the School Reform Commission, has risen up the ranks - at least temporarily.
Gov. Corbett appointed Pritchett, placed on the board by his former boss Mayor Nutter, interim chairman. Pritchett, a former aide to Mayor Nutter, will preside over the meetings until Corbett nominee Pedro Ramos is confirmed by the state Senate.
Ramos, who was chosen by Corbett on June 16 to fill the vancancy of David Girard Di-Carlo, will then become chairman of the board.
Pritchett was sworn in as an SRC member last month by Nutter.
