...And a Rainbow Appeared

A New Beginning
On the night that the resignation of Superintendent Lisa Henkel is announced a rainbow appears over Gardner Dickinson school. This photo was taken by a community member at 7:42 pm

There has been a dark cloud lingering over the small Wynantskill School District for the past several months. Last night, August 14th, that all changed. The Board of Education held a Special Meeting where the following members were present: Board President, Andrea Paone, Board Vice President, Ann Marsh, Board member, Andrew Lanesey, Board member, Matt Hug, Business Consultant, Gail Lathrop; missing from the meeting was Board member Christina Curran and Superintendent/Principal, Lisa Henkel. 
This Special Meeting, held just one night before the regularly scheduled monthly Board meeting, was set to start at 7:30 pm and was called to order at 7:35 pm. There was a singular agenda line item to be discussed, “2.1 Resolution Regarding the Superintendent/Principal”, which had not been included on the agenda previously posted on the District’s website since August 9. 
The news that was delivered was what the community had been waiting to hear for weeks; Dr. Lisa Henkel resigned as Superintendent/Principal of the Wynantskill Union Free School District.
As the beginning of the school year rapidly approaches, the community is looking forward to learning what next steps will be taken. Tonight’s regularly scheduled Board of Education meeting begins at 7 pm.
It is believed the media will also be attending tonight's meeting.
