Editorial: A Top-Notch Principal

For the upcoming fall, Roslyn High School will have a new principal. In a future issue, The Roslyn News hopes to have a more in-depth talk with Scott Andrews and what his plans are for the high school. In the meantime, we join in with the Roslyn community in expressing thanks to Kevin Scanlon for his seven years of service to the school district. Scanlon came on at a difficult time in Roslyn’s recent history as the embezzlement scandal had sullied one of the top school districts in the nation.

Roslyn has recovered strongly from those traumatic days. That recovery was a joint effort: Administrators, teachers, parents, students and, especially, school board members. But much of the credit should go to Kevin Scanlon and the steadying hand he played in performing the most difficult and most essential job in any school district: That of a high school principal. By all accounts, he was well-liked and more important, well respected. As he moves on to his new position at the Three Village School District, the Roslyn community wishes him well as it appears certain that he will be the same success that he was here in Roslyn.
