continued “I am very proud of his accomplishments and we will certainly miss him,” the superintendent said, “but wish him all the best as he continues on his career path.”
Graney is a “Ti guy.” He is a Ticonderoga native and graduated from Ticonderoga High School. He has spent his entire career, except 2 1/2 years at Putnam Central, as a teacher, coach and administrator in the Ti school district.
Graney will be principal for Bolton’s entire pre-kindergarten through 12th grade school. The district has about 230 students.
There are nearly 300 students at Ti High.
Graney believes the transition to a new principal at Ti High will be smooth.
“Whoever comes in has a great staff,” Graney said. “If the next person just lets the staff guide him they’ll be fine. That’s what I did 11 years ago and it worked out great.
“This is a great, great staff,” he added. “Ticonderoga is in good hands.”
