The Centennial School Board unanimously appointed Dr. Jennifer E. Foight-Cressman as the district superintendant Feb 22. A group of parents and community members in attendance at the board meeting met the decision with applause and cheers.

Cressman served as acting superintendant since Dec. 15 of last year, after her predecessor Dr. Thomas Turnbaugh, resigned from the post Dec. 6. Prior to the temporary appointment, Cressman served as an assistant superintendant to Turnbaugh during the one year he served as superintendent.

“I am deeply honored that our board of directors has placed its trust in me by appointing me as the superintendant of schools for Centennial School District,” Cressman said. “I can assure you that there is no one more dedicated to the children of this community or to this district. Our children are at the heart of all we do at Centennial.”

Cressman said she plans to work with members of the Centennial community over the next few months to come up with a vision for the district. She welcomed any and all feedback to establish what aspects of the district’s business are the most important for the community.

“We are experiencing times of great change in this district. I would ask that we all be of good cheer and look forward to the future with hope,” Cressman added.

Cressman holds a doctorate degree from University of Pennsylvania as well as a master’s degree from University of Pittsburg and a bachelor’s degree in education from Kutztown University.

She will serve in the position of superintendant until June 30, 2014, at an annual salary of $155,000.
