LYNDONVILLE – The Lyndonville Board of Education appointed Sharon Smith as the district’s superintendent during this evening’s board meeting.

Mrs. Smith has been serving as Lyndonville’s interim superintendent since Jan. 1, when the previous superintendent, Jason Smith, took a job at Batavia district superintendent. Mrs. Smith has worked for Lyndonville for three years and served as Lyndonville’s Director of Instruction and Student Services.

Previously, she worked as Kendall’s elementary principal, a curriculum coordinator for Frontier Schools and assistant principal, CIO and grants coordinator for Newfane schools. Prior to her administrative career, she worked as an elementary teacher for 22 years.

“Sharon Smith has been successfully serving as Lyndonville’s interim superintendent for four months,” said BOE President Theodore Lewis. “Mrs. Smith met with the Board weekly to provide updates and discuss school decisions and operational matters. As a Board, we are pleased with her performance and dedication to our students, staff, faculty and district. We believe she has the experience, knowledge and commitment needed for this position and are pleased she has agreed to serve as our permanent Superintendent of Schools.”

Mrs. Smith stated that she is sincerely honored to lead the district.

“As an Orleans County resident, and farm owner, my husband and I chose to raise our family in a rural community,” she said. “I understand and appreciate the value of a close-knit school community. I look forward to continuing my work with Lyndonville and ensuring the district continues to lead in academics, positive school culture and climate, community pride, athletics and sportsmanship, fine arts and stewardship.”
