Mr. Ralph Tunis
Born and raised in Belleville, Ralph Tunis, is in his first term as trustee serving on the Belleville Board of Education.
It was during conversations with Belleville community members when Mr. Tunis realized there was a need for continued improvement throughout the township including the neighborhood schools. Having attended Belleville High School, it is his passion and love for the township that he felt would allow him to be the voice of the community so all the people of Belleville could be heard.
As a bus aide for special need students in a neighboring School District, Mr. Tunis has experienced what it takes to make a school district function and be successful. He brings this knowledge to the Belleville Board of Education in the hopes of making it a district that parents and guardians are proud to send their children to, one that is held to the highest standard, but most of all, one that produces lifelong learners and workplace-ready individuals.
When not working within the school districts, Mr. Tunis is a disc jockey with DJMC entertainment LLC. He has also been found volunteering with the Cerebral Palsy Center in Belleville, the Mr. and Mrs. Belleville Scholarship Pageant, as well as school events including the Drug Awareness Resistance Education Program. However, one thing is for certain, regardless of what role Mr. Tunis is playing, he puts his heart and soul into his career, friends, and family, and will always bleed blue and gold!
