Whitesboro High School Principal Mr. Jeffrey Kuhn has been selected as the 2019 Administrator of the Year by the Oneida/Herkimer School Library System. The School Library System, which serves 22 school districts and 4 nonpublic schools in the Oneida/Herkimer region, held its Administrator and Awards Breakfast on June 4.

The Administrator of the Year Award is given to an administrator or administrative team in the Oneida/Herkimer area who has made a significant contribution to the school library program. The recipient must exhibit knowledge and understanding of library issues and practices, exhibit educational leadership, and promote and support the school library program and librarian.

Mr. Kuhn is the first recipient of the Oneida/Herkimer School Library System’s Administrator of the Year award.

"It was special to be recognized as the first time winner this year as there are many quality leaders in our region,” Mr. Kuhn said. “It's also nice to be recognized by the teachers for the collaborative work that we do together each day.”

Mr. Kuhn has dedicated many years of hard work to the Whitesboro Central School District, as he just completed his 25th year with the district. He first began as a teacher, spending three years teaching economics and sociology at the high school and 10 years teaching seventh grade social studies at the middle school. He was also the 6-12 Social Studies Department chairperson for eight years.

Mr. Kuhn then went on to serve as the high school assistant principal for two years, and he has been principal of the high school for 10 years.

Congratulations to Mr. Kuhn on your outstanding accomplishment, and thank you for so many years of dedication to the Whitesboro High School and its library program.
