Letter to the editor: Career Center board touts hiring of Nicole MacTavish

On behalf of the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center (PAHCC), I am delighted to report that the board has not only offered a superintendent’s contract to, but it has been accepted by Nicole MacTavish. She was interviewed by parents, students, faculty, community members/workforce and finally the school board. It is not often that one can report that a candidate sailed through each group with flying colors! We would also like to publicly thank McPherson and Jacobson LLC for their experience and help through this process.

Nicole MacTavish is currently working as an educational specialist for the U.S. Army Garrison Kwajalein Atoll. She comes with a wealth of experience in Career and Technical Education and has also served in almost every position that one can in education, from a teacher, assistant principal, assistant director, educational specialist and superintendent. Her experiences and knowledge are broad and deep, and we wish to extend to her a warm welcome to the PAHCC community and the greater community.  

MacTavish, her husband and son will be residing in Middlebury. Their son is looking forward to attending Middlebury Union High School as a ninth grader and being a Middlebury Tiger! To see her full résumé please visit the PAHCC website.

Suzanne Buck

PAHCC Board Chair
