Lincoln school board taps Kirshenbaum

LINCOLN — The Lincoln School Board on Jan. 15 filled a vacancy created by the resignation of board chair Henry Wilmer.
Three board members interviewed two candidates at the meeting, and unanimously selected Ari Kirshenbaum to be the new member.
Jen Oldham, who ascended to chair after Wilmer’s departure, said both candidates were qualified for the position. Oldham added that Kirshenbaum has younger children in the school than the other candidate (Sandy Lee), and thus would gain a better knowledge of the school over time, but said that this was not a deciding factor between the two candidates.
Kirshenbaum, who has lived in Lincoln seven years, is looking forward to helping his town.
“I felt like I wanted to get involved with the community in Lincoln, and the community school is the heart of the community,” he said on Wednesday.
Kirshenbaum, a professor of psychology at St. Michael’s College, has an eight-year-old son at Lincoln Community School.
Kirshenbaum’s appointment is effectively for one meeting, as he will have to be elected to the seat on Town Meeting Day in March in order to serve the remainder of Wilmer’s term, which runs through 2015.
