     SALINEVILLE-The Utica Shale Academy is gaining some extra help with Maia Amato serving as assistant treasurer.


    Amato, of Wellsville, was approved to serve with USA Treasurer Bob Barrett during the Southern Local Board of Education meeting on April 11.

   Amato has already begun her duties and her contract runs through June of 2026.
