HERKIMER – This year’s superintendent’s conference day at Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES the day before students return to school included the welcome of new Herkimer BOCES District Superintendent Sandra Sherwood.

The annual conference day provides an opportunity for all staff to gather to receive professional development, honor staff for reaching milestones in their years of service and recognize new staff.

During Sherwood’s welcoming address at the conference day, she said the opening day for staff doesn’t do justice to the amount of recognition the employees deserve.

“You should be celebrating yourselves all the time because you have the power to change the world,” Sherwood said. “Believe in that power, and have a wonderful school year.”

The Herkimer BOCES Board of Education appointed Sherwood as the new Herkimer BOCES district superintendent and chief executive officer on June 30, and she officially started on Friday, Sept. 1. The superintendent’s conference day took place on Tuesday, Sept. 5, at the Herkimer BOCES William E. Busacker Complex in Herkimer.

Sherwood, whose more than 20 years of administrative, teaching and community service experience includes the past nine years as the Dryden Central School District superintendent, told staff that their kindness and dedication to the work being done at BOCES increased her desire to become district superintendent.

“The pride in your programs, and the pride I saw – especially as I walked through the building – was remarkable,” she said. “The more I saw, the more I wanted to be here, and the more nervous I got about not being here.”

Sherwood said she found that Herkimer BOCES is an amazing place with dedicated people.

“I saw so much here that I wanted to be a part of,” she said.

Herkimer BOCES Board of Education President Dan LaLonde also spoke at the beginning of the conference day, and shared a similar message about the important role Herkimer BOCES staff members play by inspiring, influencing and motivating students. On behalf of the board, LaLonde thanked staff for impacting children’s lives.

“Whether you’re in front of a classroom or behind the scenes, each one of you makes a difference,” he said.
The following Herkimer BOCES staff were recognized for their years of service during the conference day:

10 years:
  • Jacqueline Edwards
  • Erica Haver
  • David Wasson
  • Christe Zambri

20 years:
  • Susan Archer
  • Mary Maneen
  • Craig Miller

25 years:
  • Diane Tooley
  • Jacqueline Unsinn
