NORWICH – The Norwich City School District has appointed Robert G. Wightman to fill the vacancy created by the departure of long-time administrator Margaret Boice.
“Norwich is fortunate to be able to quickly fill the vacant position with an individual who is a seasoned, experienced professional in educational finance and business,” said School Board President Bob Patterson.
Wightman comes to Norwich after 14 years with the Clinton Central School District, where he held the position of business administrator. The district, located in Oneida County, serves approximately 1,400 students on a $23 million budget. Norwich, by comparison, has an enrollment of roughly 2,170 students and an annual budget of $37.87 million.
“Mr. Wightman knows our area and understands our challenges, coming to us from just up the road in Clinton,” the board president said.
