RSU 13 superintendent meets staff on first day
Rockland — Regional School Unit 13 Superintendent Lewis "Lew" Collins met with school board members and central office staff on Monday, July 23 to acquaint himself with the building and his new co-workers.
Collins was presented with an Oceanside Mariners jacket, T-shirt and hats by school board Chairman Esther "Tess" Kilgour.
Collins said he has a sense of humor and wants the atmosphere of the office to be light, adding he wants staff to feel good and be productive.
"We're all here to support the most important thing, the kids," he said.
The school board voted unanimously on July 16 to hire Collins. Collins, of Readfield, is the part-time superintendent of Vinalhaven schools and has held that position for two years.
Collins is working part time at RSU 13 to start; he planned to give 90 days written notice to the Vinalhaven School Board.
