WHBI principal Gwynne Cosh and assistant principal Amanda Denno have been selected as presenters at the National School of Character Conference. This has been a goal for the WHBI for the past three years after it was awarded the National School of Character recognition in 2018.
Mrs. Cosh and Mrs. Denno will present to hundreds of school districts and businesses worldwide and share their story of empowering students and educating staff to override the effects of poverty. This presentation continues to align with the growth the entire school district is seeking in setting a long term goal of becoming a District of Character.
One of the requirements for reaccreditation for the WHBI is that each school and/or district continues to show growth in their character education program and spread their knowledge and successes by mentoring other schools and districts. Mrs. Cosh is working with the assistant principals to share best practices at each building level and to enhance programs that will bring all Queensbury students together to create strong relationships throughout our school community.
“Gwynne and Amanda are two dynamic leaders within the Queensbury school community,” said Superintendent Kyle Gannon. “I could not be more proud of them.”
