It’s official. On April 23, Anne Byrne took office as the new secretary-treasurer of the National School Boards Association. Byrne, a Pearl River Resident who is the Nanuet School Board President, was picked by a nominating committee and ran unopposed. Read more about her new position in this .
She will eventually become president of the National School Boards Association because the secretary-treasurer automatically becomes the president-elect and then, ultimately, becomes the president.
“(Byrne) You are our area-rep(resentative) … this helps us greatly,” said Board Vice President Ron Hansen. “It’s a great asset that you bring to us. It’s a great honor that you’re (part of the Nanuet School Board).”
At the Nanuet Board of Education meeting earlier this week, there was a celebration at the end with cake to mark her new role.
“It’s my honor and privilege to be on … this (Nanuet) board for 30 years. I would have never lasted for 30 years if we didn’t have such a great board and a great administration and a great staff,” said Byrne. “I’ve been to a lot of places where board members don’t last because they don’t work with great people. Because we work with great people, it makes it a joy to come to meetings. I’m really delighted to be part of Nanuet. I’m also glad to be on the National Board.”
