Buzulencia, Adger Elected to Historical Society Board

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Mahoning Valley Historical Society elected 10 directors at its recent annual meeting and voted on officers for its 2020-2021 fiscal year.

Joining the MVHS board this year is Stacey Adger, a long-time supporter of the society. Adger recently headlined the June Bites and Bits of History online presentation called, “What Brought Them Here: African American Migrations into the Mahoning Valley.” In addition to her work with the Youngstown State University police department and as a local historian and genealogist, Adger displayed her baking talent by taking top honors at the 2020 Cookie Table and Cocktails competition for her “Best Cocktail Inspired Cookie” entry of crème de menthe brownies. 

Returning to the MVHS board is Donna Buzulencia, an area real estate agent. She previously served from 2010-19, and oversaw the annual membership campaigns as chair of the Board’s Membership Committee. In her “year off” from the MVHS Board, she remained a very active Historical Society member and assisted in attracting new corporate members and sponsorships. 

Leaving the board after serving two full terms is Eugenia Atkinson. 

The 2020-2021 officers and directors are: 

  • Scott M. Zoldan, president
  • Ellen J. Tressel, first vice president
  • Frank Rulli,  second vice president
  • Carole Weimer, secretary
  • Henrietta S. Williams, assistant secretary
  • Terrence F. Cloonan, treasurer 
  • Scott R. Schulick, assistant treasurer
