PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Mary Keenan Foster is now the interim superintendent of the Peekskill City School District.
Foster was appointed last month and started her job last week. Lorenzo Licopoli, who was serving as acting superintendent, moved into a consulting role. David Fine announced his resignation as superintendent earlier this year.
Foster will serve as interim superintendent until the Peekskill Board of Education appoints a permanent superintendent. Foster has been with the district for 33 years.
“I want to thank the Board of Education and Dr. Licopoli for your confidence in my ability to lead,” Foster said. “I also would like to thank my team at Central Office for their support and confidence as well, and for being willing to work together as a team. Nothing is done in isolation, we all work together."
