Born and raised in North Pittsburgh, Rick McClure and his wife, Patti, moved to Franklin Park in 1997 to raise their three children in the North Allegheny School District. The McClure children are all proud North Allegheny graduates and credit their teachers for preparing them for success in college. After many years volunteering on the boards of Community Auto and North Hills Community Outreach, Rick was elected as a North Allegheny School Director in 2015. He was chosen by his peers to become Vice-President in 2017, and President in 2018 through 2020.
A graduate of Geneva College, Rick has managed commercial office buildings for over thirty years. His experience includes managing facilities for the University of Pittsburgh, Westinghouse, General Motors, and National City Bank. In 2001, Rick became a founding principal of Pennsylvania Commercial Management Services, Inc. where he continues to serve as the firm’s President. Upon election to the NA Board, he was appointed as Chair of the Buildings and Grounds Committee. The benefit to the district was immediately evident and the Committee examined facilities practices and projects through the lens of best business practices, saving the district many millions of taxpayer dollars.
North Allegheny is known, nationwide, for its educational excellence. As the only incumbent School Board candidate, Rick McClure is committed to working with the administration, teachers, students, and community to maintain that distinction. He looks forward to continuing his positive impact on the district through responsible operations, budgeting, and long-term planning.
