ALBION – Wayne Wadhams, president of the Albion Board of Education, has been recognized by the New York State School Board Association for being an active member in workshops and other programs.

Albion Central School Superintendent Mickey Edwards presented Wadhams with a certificate of recognition during the May 6 BOE meeting. Wadhams has earned a Level 4 Lifetime Achievement Award through the NYSSBA Board of Excellence Recognition Program.

“We are grateful for Wayne’s continued dedication to, not just the Board, but the district as a whole,” Edwards said. “We are honored to have him as a leader in our district and as a role model for our Purple Eagles.”

The NYSSBA program is designed to acknowledge members who strive to continually expand their knowledge and skills through NYSSBA trainings, workshops, events and activities.

For this achievement, Wayne is awarded a certificate for a free registration to NYSSBA’s annual convention, a commemorative plaque and an executive pen set.

Editor’s Note: Wadhams retired in June 2017 after a career as a technology teacher and coach – football, track and field, and girls basketball. Wadhams started his teaching career at Albion at the former Waterport Elementary School.

He also has served on the board for the Orleans/Niagara BOCES and was a member of the Leadership Orleans Class of 2022.
