To the Editor:
On behalf of Susan Parker, who served on the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School Committee and chaired the committee during my principalship of that school, I would like to express my deep gratitude and admiration for her service.
Susan is one of those elected officials who serves humbly, speaks quietly, but offers great insight. She is both open-minded and hard thinking about all matters concerning our schools. Always at the top of her game on policies regarding budget, negotiations, transportation, curriculum, or community outreach, she made her most precious gift to the high school the love of teachers and teaching.
Students, teachers, and the administration of the high school will miss her thoughtful decision-making, and consensus-building, as she finishes her term on the committee this week.
