The Board of Education is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Sharon Nibbelink as the next Superintendent of the Center School District.

“After an extensive national search, meetings with staff, and input from patrons, the Board of Education found our next Superintendent right down the hall. We are excited to continue the journey of excellence for the Center School District with Dr. Nibblelink as the Superintendent. She has served for over 20 years in our school district working with students, parents and teachers, most recently as the Director of Assessment, Data and Evaluation. The real winners will be the students of the Center School District. The Board is excited to begin this time with Dr. Nibbelink at the helm and will work diligently with her to ensure the students in our schools continue their academic achievement,” said Board of Education President Joe Nastasi.

“Dr. Nibbelink’s record of cooperative leadership with the staff was a critical factor the Board considered in our decision. We are looking forward to this next chapter for our community,” he said.

Dr. Nibbelink succeeds David Leone, who is retiring after over 40 years in education.

“It is an honor to serve Center School District. My selection is a vote of confidence from the Board of Education based on the amazing work our staff has done. My time at Center has been an incredible journey where I have grown and learned along with our students, my colleagues, our parents, and our community,” Dr. Nibbelink said.

“I commit myself to our school district and our community. The message of academic performance rings throughout our schools and I’m dedicated to continuing that focus on excellence. It’s about collaboration and teamwork. We have work to do, and we have the team to do it,” she said.
