Town of Washington Island:  Washington Island School District will have new leadership next school year with the departure of Superintendent Tim Raymond and Board of Education President, Robert Cornell. In April, after 10 years on the Washington Island Board of Education, Robert Cornell, stepped down from his position as board president. A graduate of Washington Island Schools, Cornell brought fiscal responsibility and innovation to the position. Amy Jorgenson, vice-president of the Board of Education commented, “His number one interest was the children, his second interest, the community. He was very concerned that the community was well informed and that their voices were heard. He was very determined to keep our school taxes as low as possible, while maintaining a great atmosphere at our school. He will be missed on the board, and is so appreciated for all his efforts.” After three years of service to the district, Superintendent Tim Raymond will move to Cambria-Friesland as Superintendent of schools. Margaret Foss, an award-winning, longtime educator on the island, reflected on Raymond’s time at Washington Island Schools, “Mr. Raymond came to us three years ago, full of exuberance and energy, ready to guide our school into the 21st Century. We have made many positive changes and improvements under his leadership. Cambria-Friesland is gaining a dynamic educator and leader.” The district has finalist interviews for the new superintendent scheduled for June 9 and 10.
