Pearl River Schools Switch
The Rotary Club of Pearl River is not the only organization making a change at the top this week. Dr. John Morgano will officially take over as the Pearl River School District's superintendent of schools Friday morning after eight years as assistant superintendent in the district.
Morgano has already made an impact with his recommendation to reorganize the district administration and to appoint Director of Curriculum Sue Wheeler to the newly-created position of Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction. The district is currently searching for somebody to fill its other new position - director of human resources and community services.
