“Meghan is respected by her colleagues and loved by her students for her commitment to their learning, and for her ability to form strong relationships with them,” said Warwick Valley Superintendent of Schools Dr. David Leach. “She also created a ‘Women in Leadership’ series for students in senior leadership classes to explore the contributions of female leaders throughout history, and who have left an indelible mark on the world.”

Ms. McGourty aspires to be a superintendent who will make a significant and lasting impact on the education of students. Please join us in congratulating her on this well-deserved honor.
