Greenwich superintendent is Weston finalist

Dr. William McKersie, superintendent of Greenwich public schools, is the finalist for the superintendent’s position in Weston.

The announcement comes following a search by the Weston Board of Education following the announcement in January that Superintendent Colleen Palmer was leaving for the superintendent’s position in Westport.

In a press release issued by Weston public schools, Lewis Brey, the district’s director of human resources, said McKersie comes to Weston with a passion for intellectual rigor and academic excellence. He said McKersie has an ability to foster collaboration between the Board of Education, teachers, community, parents and students to create an environment that enables success for all students.

Intellectual rigor, academic excellence, and compassion are a combined emphasis for McKersie, according to Brey.

McKersie responded, “Weston clearly values excellence and compassion. Weston prioritizes the full developmental needs of students, guiding them to become caring and vibrant citizens.”

Ellen Uzenoff, chairman of the Weston Board of Education, said, “We are very excited to have identified Dr. McKersie as our finalist. Dr. McKersie is an experienced and dynamic educational leader, and we are pleased to select an outstanding leader from among a field of outstanding candidates. We are enthusiastic in welcoming him to Weston. “

McKersie’s candidacy is subject to a satisfactory site visit, background check, and formal appointment by the board at its May regularly scheduled meeting, and it is anticipated that he will begin in Weston in early August.
