In the community, Dr. Sablo is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., and is a volunteer paramedic with the Edinboro Volunteer Fire Department. Dr. Sablo is also the Minister of Music (six choirs) at the St. James AME Church in Erie, PA, where he also serves as a class leader and member of the Board of Stewards.

The open seat on the Board of Education was limited to Region 3, (Edinboro Borough Districts 1 & 2) residents only. The term will expire in December 2015. The appointee may run for election in 2015 to extend the term to 2017.

Welcome to the Board, Dr. Sablo!
