FULTON, NY – Fulton Board of Education Vice President Dan Pawlewicz was presented the Board Mastery Award at Tuesday’s (May 22) regular meeting.
The award recognizes school board members across New York State that earned at least 250 points as recorded by the New York State School Board Association.
Board members receive points by participating in any NYSSBA development activities.
The award was given by The New York State School Board Association’s School Board U Recognition Program.
The program was “designed to recognize extensive time and effort for school board members who strive to continually expand their governance knowledge and skills.”
Board President, David Cordone said, “Mr. Pawlewicz is an exceptional member of the Fulton CSD Board of Education. He has demonstrated great commitment in his role as a member of our Board. Mr. Pawlewicz is an outstanding member of this Board, his passion for our students and his elected position are incomparable to any other.”
Pawlewicz has served on the board for four terms totaling twelve years. His current term will expire June 30 at which time he will be replaced by a recently elected newcomer to the board as he had chosen not to seek reelection.
“I have enjoyed being a part of the Fulton City School District Board of Education for the past 12 years. I have served on many site-based teams, as well as audit/communication/wellness and safety committees. For the past two years, I have been Fulton’s representative on the Oswego County School Boards Association. I’ve attended many workshops and conventions over the years and have met many people who share my passion for education!” he said of his time with the Fulton Board of Education.
Though he is leaving his seat on the board, he is confident with the district’s leadership and current position.
“I am confident that the FCSD is in great hands with the leadership of Superintendent Pulvino and Board President Cordone. The FCSD has a hard working dedicated staff, we are fiscally responsible, our vision is clear and we currently have the highest graduation rate on record. I am very comfortable as to where the FCSD is right now! I’d like to thank my wife and daughters for supporting me as a FCSD BOE throughout the years,” Pawlewicz said.
