Local educator named Waterford-Halfmoon superintendent
WATERFORD & HALFMOON Patrick Pomerville, an elementary school principal in Queensbury, will be appointed the new superintendent of the Waterford-Halfmoon school district, officials announced Friday.
Pomerville, of Halfmoon, will replace Timothy Lange, who will be retiring this year. The Board of Education is expected to appoint him at a salary of $140,000 annually at its April 24 meeting.
Pomerville is expected to start work July 25.
He has been at the Queensbury Elementary School since 1999, and previously was an administrator or teacher in St. Lawrence County, Glens Falls, Queensbury and Hadley-Luzerne.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to work with the entire school community of Waterford-Halfmoon,” Pomerville said.
The Waterford-Halfmoon Board of Education began looking for Lange’s replacement in September. Warren-Saratoga-Washington-Hamilton-Essex BOCES District Superintendent James Dexter coordinated the search.
Pomerville has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from SUNY-Potsdam and an administration certification from SUNY-Plattsburgh.
