Derry School Board welcomes new student liaison
DERRY — The School Board welcomed a new student representative from Pinkerton Academy at its Tuesday night meeting.
Junior Timothy Wood will sit in on board meetings and update the board on activities at the high school.
“I was involved in the selection process and Tim did a super job, as did all the candidates,” said Assistant Superintendent MaryAnn Connors-Krikorian. “I want to extend our warmth and gratitude to him, and I know he will be a great representative for Pinkerton Academy.”
Wood is a member of the varsity soccer team and is part of the new Academy Mentor Program that helps advise Pinkerton Academy freshmen.
“I feel that I have a lot to offer the community and Pinkerton Academy,” said Wood. “I thought I would give back to Pinkerton Academy as they have given back to so many in Chester, Hampstead and Derry.”
During the meeting, Wood also gave his first report to the board, updating members on the latest round of NECAP testing for juniors and the Pinkerton Academy band’s performance at the recent Salem High School band show.
“The band did well,” he said. “I have a lot of friends in the band, so I went to see them.”
Superintendent Laura Nelson also welcomed Wood to his new position on the board.
“Those were some wonderful words about why he wants to participate and give back that I found very admirable and articulately stated. We look forward to working with you,” she said.
In other business Tuesday night, the School Board made the final two appointments to its Fiscal Advisory Board, which holds its initial meeting of the 2013-14 budget process on Monday, Oct. 22, at the Gilbert H. Hood Middle School at 6:30 p.m.
The board approved the appointment of Stephen Tritto as a new member and reappointed John Murphy, whose term had expired.
