Elizabethtown The Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School Board and community welcomed back Scott Osborne to the district and his new office Nov. 15.
Osborne was hired by the school to serve as its new superintendent/principal last month, and the board held a welcome gathering for the former school K-12 principal.
“We wanted to give the community a chance to meet Scott again,” board president Brett Sicola said. “This is a chance to officially inaugurate his new time with us as both principal and chief school officer.”
“It is really fantastic to be back,” Osborne said. “There is a certain level of change, and I am getting to know all of the people again. I feel that we are going to have a great, solid momentum going forward.”
Members of the board commented on how comfortable they were with the decision to bring Osborne back to ELCS.
“Based on what I learned through the interview process, I thought that he was the best candidate and had all of the qualities that we were looking for,” board member Alan Jones said.
“He is a perfect fit for the district,” board member Nick Disogra said. “He changes the tenor for the school and is just a great fit for us.”
“He has got such respect from the teachers, students and the community,” board member Karen Hooper said. “We are very excited that he is back and we are looking forward to good things.”
Osborne started his new job Nov. 13, and was part of the Nov. 15 board meeting that followed the meet-and-greet, which was held in the school’s main hall.
