The Greenport school board named Heather Wolf as its newest president Monday night after Tina Volinski stepped down from the post she’s held for two years.
Ms. Wolf, 51, is a former board president and has served on the board since 2007. Her appointment was approved unanimously during the board’s yearly reorganization meeting.
“It’s an honor,” Ms. Wolf said after she was sworn in. “I feel like we’ve accomplished so much in the last five years … We’ve created a lot of momentum and I hope this year is about just enjoying that, reaping the benefits and continuing to focus on children.”
Ms. Wolf is a management consultant for a division of the Financial Times and the mother of two children. She and her family have lived in Greenport for the past 10 years.
The board also appointed Dan Creedon, who was elected to his second term last month, as its newest vice president. The former vice president, Lisa Murray, did not seek re-election this year.
Mr. Creedon is a Greenport firefighter and an earth science teacher at Islip High School.
Ms. Murray’s seat is now held by former Greenport school district clerk Babette Cornine, who won as a write-in candidate during the May 15 election.
