Resignation of Superintendant of Schools Dr. Laura Morana
I have had a discussion with our Superintendent of Public Schools, Dr. Laura Morana today where she advised that she will be resigning her position.
I am saddened to see Laura go. But at the same time I am extraordinarily grateful that she has been able to devote 7 years of her life to Red Bank and in that time brought a level of excellence and accomplishment that had never been experienced by us in the past. Dr. Morana raised the bar and challenged students, parents and guardians, teachers, administrators and staff to achieve new levels of excellence. For that I am thankful.
Laura was not a 9-5 person. More so than any of her predecessors, she became the embodiment of our community – joining me at so many community functions at all times and weekends as an equal and enthusiastic partner.
There is much sadness in her announcement. But we as a community ought to look upon the great blessing that we have had in being able to have the wisdom and leadership of Dr. Laura Morana for the seven years that she has been with us. She leaves a legacy of success and pride.
Red Bank shall be close to her heart. I am confident that she will never be far from us. I look forward to continuing her friendship and having her wise counsel as a friend and collaborator in the years ahead.
