What a great job by the students at the Lake Placid High School in their performance of "Grease" that was held March 22-24.
There's been far too much bad publicity coming out of the school district recently, that it was certainly a breath of fresh air to see such enthusiasm and heart put into the
performances. It was a much-needed boost to the spirit of everyone, from the students and parents to the school's
faculty and staff.
Now hopefully the next great performance will be by the school board and the entire school administration to make sure there is no more drama. Their next act should not only ensure that students receive a great education, but allow them to take pride in those who are paid to lead. The curtain is yet to rise on that key act - but the audience is watching and waiting.
Also, bravo and best wishes to Keene Central School Superintendent Cynthia Ford-Johnston. After nearly 16 years as the principal, business manager and superintendent of that school district, she has announced that she will be retiring at the end of this school year. She has done well for the residents and students of Keene. Hopefully, her replacement(s) will show the same pride at working in those positions.
