About 50 faculty, staff, parents and community members in the Mamaroneck School District gathered Thursday to wish Superintendent Paul Fried farewell
as he moves on to become Superintendent of Schools in Montville, New Jersey.
At the ceremony in the library of Mamaroneck High School, Linnet Tse, President of the Mamaroneck School Board, members of the Central Staff, PT Council, Mamaroneck Schools Foundation, and Mamaroneck Teacher’s Association Fried for his patience, sense of calm, and ability to be both a leader and a team player. According to former President of the PT Council Susan Lewen, “Paul approached each issue with a quiet smile, open eyes, and open ears…then applied his intelligence”.
The accolades were accompanied by a performance by the Mamaroneck High School String Ensemble and finished off with a concert by the Swing Choir and a simple reception outside of the library. New York State Assemblyman George Latimer arrived just in time to praise his service.
Mr. Fried finally stood up to say “This kind of day is too good to be true. I will always remember the students and the incredible enthusiasm that they approach their learning with.”
