Sue Ceglowski has been appointed the new executive director for the Vermont School Boards Association, effective Nov. 8. For the past year and a half, Ceglowski has served as the director of Legal and Policy Services for the Association. In this role, Ceglowski has overseen the organization’s legislative and policy service and provided training, consultation and guidance to school board members across the state.
Prior to her service at the Association, Ceglowski was an attorney in private practice and with the state of Vermont. Ceglowski comes to this position with a law degree and a master’s degree from Vermont Law School. Her undergraduate degree is from Cornell University. She grew up in Vermont and served on her local school board and supervisory union board for more than 10 years with eight of those years as chair of both boards. Sue has an unwavering commitment to a strong public education system in Vermont and a deep appreciation for school boards’ service to the students, schools and communities of Vermont.
Nicole Mace, the current executive director of the Association, will be departing the organization on Nov. 7.
“Vermont’s school boards are fortunate to have two very high quality leaders serving their Association,” said Neil Odell, vice-president of the Association board. “We are pleased to have the continuity at this critical time for Vermont’s school boards. Nicole has helped guide the VSBA through a tumultuous time for school boards and built a strong team at the association. Sue will be able to move forward with providing our members the services that help them serve as effective trustees for education in their communities.”
The VSBA is a membership organization supporting school boards to be effective trustees for education in their communities and providing a strong collective voice toward enhancing the cause of public education.
